Description

82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes

Aromas of cassis, raspberry, perfume and vanilla are interwoven with tobacco, cedar and cocoa. On the palate the wine is dense and concentrated with a finish that is long and complex. We recommend decanting in its youth. Our favorite pairings include beef tenderloin, and herb encrusted rack of lamb.

Vintage

The 2006 vintage has been described as a “growers” year by some vintners. After a late bud break due to an unseasonably cool spring, the Napa Valley experienced a record setting heat wave in July, which allowed the grapes to catch up in ripening. An ideal mild weather pattern came in August and an “Indian Summer” followed into October allowing for slow and even ripening, resulting in acids and sugars in perfect harmony.

Winemaking

Profile is our flagship red Bordeaux blend showcasing the very best fruit from each vintage. Our favorite lots of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc are chosen for their concentration, depth of flavor and fine tannin structure to produce a wine that is rich, elegant and opulent. After a six day cold soak, the wine underwent extended maceration. We aged Profile for 25 months in 90% new French Oak barrels (Taransaud, Darnajou and Sylvain).
