Covenant Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 2006: This big, bright garnet-colored, full-bodied wine was produced by Jeff Morgan, a former Wine Spectator Magazine journalist, and Leslie Rudd, owner of Rudd Vineyards. The wine has a rich bouquet of cassis, crème de cassis, black cherries, and blackberries, with hints of vanilla, and eucalyptus. Although drinking well now, the wine will only start to be at its best late next year, and should age well until at least 2012. Score A.
