International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($200; 15.3% alcohol; a 75/25 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot) Very good deep ruby-red. Deep aromas of black raspberry, cassis, mocha, leather and dark chocolate. Dense and broad but sappy, with lovely lift to the lush flavors of blueberry, brown spices and tobacco. An outsized, opulent Napa Valley red with just enough acidity to keep it fresh. In fact, I find this less roasted than the 2005 release. Finishes with huge, dusty, building tannins and excellent length.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 180

The 2006 Futo (75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot) exhibits a deep ruby/blue/purple color, a flawless integration of tannin, acidity, wood, and alcohol, and gorgeous opulence. While Futo is situated on western hillsides overlooking Oakville, it displays a style that has more in common with the purity and elegance found in Screaming Eagle, which is a few miles to the east, on the valley floor. This beautiful 2006 is a resounding success for this vintage, which had some issues with rustic tannins.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube Issue: Web

Starts smooth, rich and supple, with spicy currant, black cherry, wild berry and plum, with hints of black olive, cedar and cigar box. Full-bodied, firming on the finish. Very tight at this stage. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
