The flagship 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon comes predominantly from the famous Champoux Vineyard in which the winery is a partner. It was aged in 100% new oak. It sports a deep purple-color with a captivating nose of spice box, sandalwood, truffle, Asian spices, incense, black cherry, and black currant. Opulent on the palate (but elegant as well), it already reveals serious complexity, density, and succulence of fruit. Enjoyable now but with at least 8-10 years of cellaring potential, this marvelous effort should have a 30 year lifespan.

Very ripe and generous. Not a big wine, but brims with plum, currant, black olive, cedar and roasted meat flavors, all playing against crisp tannins and lingering on the tight finish. Needs time in the cellar in order to open and flourish.

Rich, but not weighty, nice balance. Not great at first, opens some with decanting but for the cost an underwhelming wine.
Color: Garnet to claret red, dark red core
Nose & Palate: Black currants, spicy oak, herbal, chocolate and some cassis. Finishes a tad oaky. Very underwhelming.

Amazing! Every bit as good as the 2005. Quilceda Creek is the best Cab producer in the USA in my opinion.
