Approachable and enjoyable now but best 2009–2013 (2 January 2008)
Do you see the 2006 less approachable now?

2005- Currently on the Market
Chateau Golan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Royal Reserve, 2005: Almost impenetrably dark garnet in color, this wine is both concentrated and elegant. A blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc, opening with spicy, mocha-tinged black currants, those yielding to blackberries, herbs and light oak. Hints of light sea salt and leather on the super-long finish make the wine intriguing. Perhaps the best yet from the winery. Best 2009–2015. Score 94.

The Cabernet Sauvignon is one of my favorites within the local CS selection, but the Merlot is the real "pearl", so different, unique and exceptional that it really demonstrate how a good Merlot can escape the plumy-jammy trap of other Merlot's.
