International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($175; blended with 8% each merlot and petit verdot and 1% cabernet franc) Good deep ruby-red. Roasted, smoky aromas of redcurrant and crushed rock, with a liqueur-like nuance. Supple, lush and sweet, but with surprising acidity and a recurring rocky quality giving energy to the middle palate. Finishes with sweet tannins and strong torrefaction notes of coffee and toffee. This has the stuffing to age but also offers considerable upfront appeal.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 180

The Cabernet Sauvignon from the Aida Vineyard is becoming one of the most exceptional northern Napa Valley Cabernets, with a production ranging between 600-700 cases. The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Vineyard reveals aromas of melted chocolate, scorched earth, pepper, and creme de cassis. Fashioned from 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot, and a touch of Cabernet Franc, it exhibits a superb texture along with those notions of charcoal and burning embers that come from this rock-laden soil. This full-bodied 2006 is more masculine and muscular than the 2005, without that wine's complexity (of course, it has been in bottle for less time). While it is a successful wine for the vintage, buyers will need to be patient as it requires 2-3 years of bottle age; it should drink well for 20 years.
