2006 Salus "Staglin Family Vineyards" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Rutherford | Nappa Valley, CA | 750ml bottle | 14.9% ABV
Made by winemaker Fredrik Johansson from fruit farmed by David Abreau the 2006 Salus Cabernet Sauvignon from Staglin Family Vineyards in Rutherford, California pours out a deep purple in color with just a little light getting through on the edges. The nose is redolent with blackberry and dark fruits. Hints of graphite and earth. In the mouth this is till quite young with firm tannins. Lots of fruit does come through but this is going to take a few more years in the cellar to balance out and should age well beyound that for many years to come. Currant, plum and cherry flavors are prevelant with a good dose of earthiness. A big, full bodied wine that is an excellent cabernet sauvignon. Can't wait to try it again in a few years.
