"The 2006 Champoux Vineyard is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new French oak. A saturated purple color, it gives up exotic, sexy aromas of wild cherry and wild blueberry along with notes of toasty oak, incense, and spice box. Elegant and silky on the palate, it is already exhibiting complexity along with the balance to evolve for 4-6 years. This lengthy effort will offer a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2026."
