Gaja Darmagi 2006
Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Langhe Darmagi (Cabernet Sauvignon) makes a far more eloquent case for itself than the 2007. The fruit is dark, massive and imposing, while perfumed varietal notes add considerable complexity. A muscular core of blackberries, blueberries, graphite, grilled herbs, roasted coffee beans and French oak emerges with notable density. The tannins are firm yet impeccable, while the wine's balance is first-class. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.
Wine SpectatorDistinctly varietal and aromatic, offering black currant and violet flavors, with hints of sage and sweet spice, all melding with the rich texture and integrated structure. Lingers with black currant and spice on the aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2014. 50 cases imported.
