With 36 months in barrel and five years in bottle, the 2006 Delgadillo Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon has been beautifully aged in ideal cellar conditions before its release. This vintage opens with a generous, intense bouquet of red and black fruits, cherry, and vanilla. The palate closely echoes the nose, leading to a long, lingering finish of soft, luscious tannins. As this vintage opens up in the glass, tannins round out and soften and the wine evolves even bigger on the palate.
This bottling presents the distinctive character of Napa Valley’s southern Coombsville AVA. The vines are meticulously hand-tended by Ignacio Delgadillo, Sr. The Coombsville vineyard is tucked along a small creek in rocky soils. The temperate conditions there promote a long growing season, creating grapes with rich aromatics and smooth tannins.

Grapes were harvested in the cool early morning hours to ensure clusters arrived at the winery in perfect condition. After destemming, a whole-berry fermentation lasted 8 days. A gentle basket press separated wine from the skin cap, capturing nearly free run juice.
