2006 Otis Kenyon Cabernet Sauvignon

This is very rich wine, with loads of chocolate and bruised black fruit, a touch of cloves, and sweet dusty tannins. Wood effects are obvious, teetering on the edge but not quite tipping into the realm of an "oaksident." The wood is a big part of the flavor profile, turning some drinkers on and others off. Drink it with pan seared lamb chops and deglaze the pan with a little of the wine.
