Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($125) Bright ruby-red. Blueberry, cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice and menthol on the nose. Supple and lush on the palate, with captivating cassis, mineral and melted chocolate flavors; showed a strong graphite quality with air. This boasts a compellingly creamy texture and finishes with substantial sweet tannins. A very nicely balanced 2006, built to age but already offering considerable appeal. This is consulting winemaker Celia Masyczek's own project, made from vines on Pritchard Hill as well as in Rutherford and Oakville.

Still in barrel, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits the vintage's more muscular, masculine style along with high tannins as well as plenty of concentration and substance. Still unformed, it needs more time to sort out its big-framed personality. It should turn out to be outstanding, but whether or not it will compete with the gorgeous elegance of the beautiful 2005 remains to be seen.

Wine Spectator | 91

A mix of ripe, sweetish plum, currant and black cherry fruit framed by cedary oak, mineral and firm tannins, this is rich, complex and concentrated, well-proportioned and full-bodied, ending with nice structure and length.
