Licorice, dried green herbs, cassis, blackberry, printers ink. Showing almost medicinal/ cough syrup-like today. Firm tabacco and graphite/granite finish. Very interesting.

Elegant and full, paired very well with Osso Buco. The usual LP Bordeaux profile, some herbal notes. Drink up.

Very ripe and generously fruity, with smoky oak, rounded-off tannins and low acidity, finishing sweet and seductive. Lacks tension, though.

One of the nicest Cabs I’ve had in a while. Love it.

Pulled a LP after seeing David Lentine’s note on the ‘07. This ‘06 is drinking much better than the recent cellartracker notes but like the ‘07’s that I have drank, this is missing “that extra gear” that would put it into Division I. This is a D II athlete charging a D I scholarship price point.

Beautifully balanced - acidity, fruit, and tannins are perfectly aligned. You wouldn't guess it was from California.
