International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($90; includes 3% petit verdot and 2% malbec) Deep, bright, saturated ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, tobacco, chocolate and smoky oak. A fat, sexy fruit bomb of a cabernet, with a dominant flavor of black cherry. Mostly from late-ripening vines in the cool Coombsville area. In fact, at the time of a two-day heat spike in mid-September, said winemaker Mark Herold, the grapes were still at just 22o Brix, and the harvest ultimately took place mostly during the third week of October. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 180

A more masculine, tannic, structured offering is the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of flowers, black raspberries, and blackberries are followed by a rich, full-bodied, big, concentrated wine that can stand up to the tannic ferocity. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring, and drink it over the next 20 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Firm and structured, showing a tight band of cedary- and creamy-oak flavors, chewy tannins and an extracted core of earthy currant, mineral and blackberry fruit where the tannins definitely hold the upper hand. Needs time or aeration.

Unusual cab, not terribly appealing.
