2006 Gorman Winery The Bully Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine: The Bully
Producer: Gorman Winery
Vintage: 2006    Varietal(s): Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Merlot (10%), Petit Verdot (10%)
Cost: $38
Quality: 92-93 | Excellent

Dark ruby, opaque in the glass. On the nose is an abundance of ripe creamy red fruits and cocoa. Dark red fruit with cherries, chocolate and vanilla round out the palate. Good structure, long finish with a very solid ‘deliciousness’ factor.  Excellent.

Buzz: Another one of my favorite producers for a few years now. A former ‘Cult’ winery that has since received the press to back up the buzz. Focuses on limited production premium wines from some of the best grapes in Washington. Super quality consistent lineup year in and year out.  Recommended.

Availability: Sometimes limited.  Local grocery stores, wine shops & winery.
