International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($135; 15.2% alcohol) Saturated ruby. Sexy aromas of cassis, licorice, loam and toasty oak, along with torrefaction notes of bacon, coffee and mocha. Sweet, lush and outsized; a no-holds-barred cabernet with a strong element of chocolatey torrefaction. Has the sheer mid-palate density of material to support its huge, toothfurring tannins. A big boy! Mark Herold was responsible for making these wines through the 2007 vintage, with Celia Masyczek taking over in 2008. Masyczek told me she will seek to make a more refined style.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 186

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, a candidate for Cabernet of the vintage, reveals a gorgeous perfume of chocolate, black raspberries, flowers, ink, and graphite, followed by a full-bodied, textured, superbly concentrated wine with terrific purity as well as density. Drink this outstanding 2006 over the next 15-20 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Tight, dense and concentrated, with a tight mix of wild and blackberry fruit that's both powerful and restrained, slowly unfolding to offer spice, mineral, sage and iodine. The long, persistent finish is framed by trim tannins.

Vinfolio Author: Vinfolio Team

A blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec, this wine is unfined and unfiltered and gets 22 months in 100% new French oak. It has a dark red/aubergine hue and is packed full of luscious red raspberry, mint, and dark chocolate bouquet. This Cabernet has velvety yet strong tannins, great dark berry fruit concentration, and an incredibly long finish.

Very nice wine. Plush mouth feel, great flavors of fruit, spice and a bit of mineral with smooth tannins. Not a fruit bomb, but a nice big wine.
