International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($130) Bright red-ruby. Lovely floral lift contributes precision to the aromas of raspberry, rose petal and licorice. Sweet, high-pitched and sharply delineated; velvety but not thick. There's a juicy quality to the ripe red fruit, mineral and graphite flavors, not to mention a firm underlying spine, that promises a long and positive evolution in bottle. Quite young but not austere, finishing with building tannins and lovely lift. The lingering perfume of red fruits, pepper, flowers and licorice is unusually complex. A really superb 2006, seemingly every bit as good as the sensational 2005.

91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot. Intense, powerful and tightly tannic, with a complex mix of smoke, tobacco, green olive, herbs and black spice to go with ripe cassis/black cherry fruit. Multi-layered, even in infancy. (LM)

Wine Advocate Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown Issue: 0510

Very deep garnet-purple colour. A wonderfully perfumed nose of violets, crushed blackberries, black cherries, mace and cloves leading into some smoked meat and mocha aromas with swirling. Very structured on the palate with high acidity, a medium to high level of fine tannins and a full body providing plenty of flesh in the mid-palate. Very long layered finish.

Tasted over two nights. Not to my liking at all on night one. Very clearly a nose and palate of concord grape jelly with a hint of the classic Dominus flavors lurking in the background. This blew off somewhat with air. On the latter part of night two, the wine was finally unlocked. Grape jelly gone and a monster emerges! Classic cedar, cigar smoke, cassis, dark jammy fruits and a boatload of tannin. This is an extremely young wine capable of many decades of life. Don't bother touching it for at least 5 years unless you want to let it breathe for at least 30 hours. 90 points from opening to 30 hours. 95 points thereafter.
