The 2006 Cabernet from Ric Forman is aging beautifully and is starting to really drink well at a dozen years out from the vintage. The complex nose is really quite a synthesis of Bordeaux sensibilities and Howell Mountain fruit, offering up scents of cassis, dark berries, cigar smoke, a bit of tobacco leaf, a fine undertow of gravelly soil elements, a very discreet base of cedary oak and again, just a touch of subtle eucalyptus in the upper register. On the palate the wine is complex, full-bodied, focused and classy, with fine mid-palate depth, melting tannins and excellent focus and grip on the long, open and very classy finish. Again, this is plenty ripe, but does not show it on the nose at all and is beautifully balanced on the palate. Impressive juice. (7/2018)
