Peller Estates Private Reserve 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon - 85pts

Peller Estates Private Reserve 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (Southern Okanagan) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Widely available at private and BCLDB stores

Cost: $19.99 (BC Liquor Stores)

Alcohol: 13.4%

Date Tasted: October 9th, 2009

Tasting Notes: This wine requires 3 hours+ of decanting to open-up. Once it has decanted, the nose becomes quite lovely and complex. With 2+ years already in the bottle the aromas are developing nicely with scents of licorice, dark fruits, pencil shavings and a hint of leather. The palate offers good tannins and acidity which have preserved the flavours of cassis, bitter chocolate, graphite and dark berries nicely.
Look for the 2006 vintage to be marked-down at some BC Liquor Stores to the bargain price of $13.99 to make way for the 2007 vintage which was release earlier this year. Drink now. - LC
