2006 Lake William Blend
94 Points. Gold Medal. Beverage Testing Institute. Deep violet garnet color. Complex aromas and flavors of dried cassis, creme brulee, olive, leather, spice, and cocoa. Rich and sinewy on the palate with a dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a long, chewy cedar, roasted vegetable, and slate accented, chewy tannin finish. A powerful and brooding red blend to serve with prime rib and porterhouse.
