The 2006 CV Curriculum Vitae seems a little more focused, a little smaller scaled on opening than the sexy ’05 or the powerful ’04 and ’03. That said this is a big success in the vintage, and a candidate for wine of the vintage.
It has surprisingly good structure and intensity, delicious fruit that is even better on Day 2 and a pretty respectable finish for a 2006. This has come along beautifully since I first saw it at the winery.
It will be approachable early, but a couple of years in the cellar would help. Drink 2010-2019
