"The 2006 Casa de Illana Seleccion is a blend of 50% Petit Verdot and 50% Syrah aged for 18 months in 300-liter French oak. It exhibits a smoky, toasty, blackberry, and blueberry bouquet leading to a ripe, sweet, layered, pleasure-bent wine. Dense, concentrated, and easy-to-understand, this forward effort is for hedonists only. Enjoy it over the next six years."
