2006 William Harrison Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #500370
A big, bold, intensely flavored wine, the 2006 Estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon shows why Napa cabernet is so sought after. Tiers of rich currant and black cherry mix with the cedar, tobacco and earth notes. In the mouth, dark-red fruit flavors mix with leather and licorice, while the toasty oak finish lingers on the palate with moderate tannins. The wine maker is Phillip Titus who also makes Chappellet.

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: Harrison’s Cabernet is a bit hard in youth, marked by strong tannins that make for an astringent mouthfeel. It’s also somewhat linear in varietal flavor, with ripe black currants and blackberries and a certain minerality.
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in small stainless steel tanks after a 2-day cold soak. Twice-a- day pump-overs were applied and as fermentation temperatures reached 90 degrees more intensive pump-overs were used to extract the deep color and rich flavors from the grapes. Careful pressing techniques allowed us to take each Cabernet block and separate it into three distinctly different lots. These lots were evaluated, and the best lots of each variatal were used in the resulting blend.
