Chateau d'Armailhac 2006

They don't do a lot wrong chez Chateau d'Armailhac.  I didn't write down a lot of notes for this wine, in no small part because I was too busy drinking it.   What I did write was this: the definition of blackcurrant and cigar box.  On the palate, good length and medium acidity.  The sort of cabernet that I will return to, again, and again.  93 points.
