Super tasty. Nice development, plush but not gaudily opulent. Cali done well

Saw an ‘06 on a wine list and grabbed this 12 year-old beauty. Mike Grgich 1st gained international recognition at the celebrated "Paris Tasting" of '76 where a panel of eminent French judges were shocked they chose Mike’s '73 Montelena Chard as the finest white wine in the world! Elegant, rich berry fruit aromas, licorice notes. On the palate blackberry & cherry, bits of cacao and cinnamon, soft fine tannins. Lingering finish ending with soft oaky notes. Opened quickly and drank beautifully.

Clear dark Ruby color and full bodied with acid. Clean medium intensity nose with dark berry, oak and alcohol notes. Restrained dark berry, earth and tar notes on the palate leading to a smooth peppery finish with fine tannins. Still a big delicious Cabernet, but most likely close to the ends of it's best drinking window, as the fruit notes are receding. Began opening up after a 60 minute decant.

2006 Biodynamic, lots of complexity! Plum, blackberry, graphite, eucalyptus, cigar box and plum on pallet, smooth tannins, nice acidity

Nice and earthy on the back, slightly soft (surprisingly) on the front. Chunky, tobacco, leather and burnt black cherry. Good value with Grgich releasing some 2006 now for the same price as the current release (2012); hopefully your merchant does price it similarly.
