"Produced for us from a well-known Spring Mountain estate vineyard (Smith-Madrone), which is near the top of that appellation, this 2006 "Reserve" Kalinda is a classic mountainside cabernet with incredible natural concentration and focus. Deep ruby, almost inky in color, the nose explodes with definitive aromas of cassis, blackberry currants, and anise. There are undertones of espresso, chocolate, and cedar that carries over into a flashy, expansive, complex, layered palate impression with a huge middle, and all supported by round, silky, integrated tannins. The finish on this broad wine refuses to quit and, with airing, can be consumed near-term. Anderson has informed me that this Gem will age nicely for ten plus years, which we plan to do. It will be our house Cabernet for at least that period of time." (Jim Barr)"
