Review: 2006 Janzen Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

The rather thin body on this Napa Cabernet fills out a bit as it gets some time with air, but Janzen’s Cab never quite gels. Tough and tight, you will eke out aromas of coffee and tar, and flavors of dark berries, bramble, and wood — but the hard finish indicates either a wine that’s just a bit too unripe or one that needs years more in the bottle before it’s ready to drink. Maybe that’s why I keep imagining the line treatment on the bottle is actually barbed wire.

B+ / $40
