Tasting Notes

91 points Wine Enthusiast. 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 'The crimson-colored 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 15 months in American oak, 30% new. It reveals a fine nose of cedar, tobacco, spice box, black currant, and blackberry. On the palate it is full-bodied, smooth-textured, ripe, and easygoing. Its excellent balance should allow it to drink well over the next eight years. " (02/09) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and chocolaty, with a distinct hazelnut note weaving through the black cherry and chocolate flavors, remaining focused and refined through the long, vivid finish. Drink now through 2014." (Web only, 2009) According to Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Intensely spicy nose displays cherry, blackcurrant and pipe tobacco. Fresh dark berry flavors are braced by smoky minerals, with dusty tannins adding grip. Shuts down a bit on the finish, which is tangy and a touch bitter. Give this some time to flesh out and gain sweetness." (Sep/Oct 08) 94 points from James Halliday's Wine Companion: "A deeply coloured, potent and strongly varietal cabernet, with blackcurrant, dark chocolate and earth all in the mix, the tannin supple yet strongly supportive. Oh, for a screwcap to double the wine's life."
