"The 2006 LOTA spent 13 months in new French oak. It is opaque purple in color with a superb bouquet of sandalwood, smoke, Asian spices, incense, violets, blackcurrant, and plum. Medium- to full-bodied on the palate, it reveals excellent density, layered fruit, succulent, spicy flavors, precision balance, and enough underlying structure to evolve for at least 5-6 years. This outstanding effort will be in full form on its 20th birthday."
