Unlike any wine I've tasted

Opened this the other evening to accompany a rack of lamb and roasted veggies. The bordeaux blend was impressive and smooth on the palate, but not much of a nose initially. Unbelievably dark, inky wine that changed character in the glass over the course of the meal. I've drunk a lot of wines, but this one was unlike any other I've had. I couldn't put my finger on it, so decided to just sit back and enjoy the ride. I can't wait to drink the rest in a day or two to see how it has evolved. Something tells me this wine will indeed get better with some more bottle age; perhaps my next one will warrant five stars. Terrific wine from a Napa innovator.

Napa Valley 2006

The 2006 vintage was not the easiest for Napa growers, as a wide range of issues demanded careful management of the vineyards. It started as winter flooding, and wet weather pushed back bud break — spring botrytis was a problem. Things heated up in June and July, and shatter was a problem, but the pace of ripening also caught up somewhat in the warm conditions. August cooled off a bit, allowing the pace of ripening to continue at a good clip, and conditions remained sound through the harvest. Cool temperatures arrived in October, with a little rain in the first week, and mold was a concerns. Late-ripening Cabernet struggled somewhat to achieve perfect physiological ripeness, and while the vintage has produced some very good to excellent wines, it is a bit more variable than the stellar years that surround it.
