Glass-staining ruby. Deep, youthfully brooding cassis and dark cherry on the nose, with a strong licorice note building in the glass. Sappy black and blue fruit flavors are framed by dusty tannins and energized by a tangy mineral note. The licorice quality repeats on the finish, which is broad, sappy and impressively persistent. For a big boy, this is pretty graceful. (ST)
Although backward, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Larkmead Vineyard (3,820 cases) is extremely promising. Its inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of smoke herbs, graphite, creme de cassis, coffee beans, and toasty oak. With sensational fruit on the attack and mid-palate, and a finish filled with power, glycerin, depth, and impressive structure, this 2006 will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and should evolve for two decades or more.

Linear cassis and cedar aromas and flavours. Tight and reticent, with liquorice and sage accenting dense black fruit. Should open with cellaring. (LM)
Intense and slightly earthy and rustic in a pleasant way. Shows pebble, fresh earth and a touch of forest floor, with spicy currant and berry fruit that's wrapped in the wine's earthiness. Ends with rich tannins. (JL)
