Description

97    Connoisseurs Guide
“This immense, deeply fruited, lavishly oaked wine is all about the future, and, despite showing loads of highly concentrated, black currant character, it is prohibitively tannic for near term drinking. It is also as rich and as precise in its varietal Cabernet Sauvignon focus as any wine tasted in some time. Everything about this one speaks to depth and longevity, and it is likely to need a decade or more before hitting its stride. But, few wines are its equal for classic flavors even now and fewer still will match its progress in the fullness of time.” *Three Stars* (4/2009)

94    Robert Parker for Wine Advocate
“Chocolate, cassis, licorice, cedar, and soil undertones dominate the fragrant aromatics of the dense purple-colored 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. A big wine with enviable purity as well as harmony, and a long finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 15-25 years.” (12/2008)

92+    Stephen Tanzer
“Deep ruby-red. Cassis, black cherry, licorice, smoke and menthol on the nose. Opulent on entry, then broad and fairly full in the middle, with youthfully reticent flavors of sweet dark berries and intriguing soil tones. This really spreads out on the back end, finishing with a fine, broad dusting of tannins and mouthcoating persistence. Not yet especially nuanced but has the balance to evolve well.” (5/2009)
