06 Sebastiani Cherryblock ($75) ☺☺☺☺

Patience is invariably rewarded when it comes to good wines. In this case cellaring has turned this wine into a great classic Napa Cabernet. The initial nose is deep black fruit with the wonderful cigar box which is indicative of a great cabernet. On the taste you get this wonderful vanilla and expresso secondary flavour which supports the overall blackcurrant style. Great wine with food and needs to be opened about an hour before drinking.
