International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($75) Dark ruby. Currant, minerals, dark chocolate, tobacco, loam, smoke, roast coffee and spicebox scents on the complex nose. Lush, concentrated and broad, with a seamless texture and a captivating restrained sweetness. A wine with serious stuffing, and a step up in intensity and suavity from the Ranch bottling. Finishes very long, with slowly mounting flavors and sweet tannins.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 180

The prodigious 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 8+% Petit Verdot, and about 5% Cabernet Franc) reveals aromas of flowers, espresso roast, blackberries, and creme de cassis. This exuberant, rich, full-bodied Cabernet coats the palate, but is neither heavy nor overbearing. Sweet, substantial, well-integrated tannins along with decent acidity, and a stunningly long, 50-second finish make for a compelling glass of young, but promising Cabernet Sauvignon. This 2006 should hit its peak in 3-5 years, and last for 25 or more..

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A touch earthy at first, but the flavors build and expand, with a medley of herb and mineral joined by dry currant, cedar and spice. Very Pauillac-like in its structure, balance and restraint. Keeps getting better with every sip.

This was a big round cab bomb. Lots of fruit and deep rich flavor. No mistaking this for anything other than a big napa cab. Nice intensity and finish. This is nice juice. I prefer the 06 to some other more highly rated years from Snowden.

Medium rim and long legs, intense nose of plum, cassis and blackberry with a hint of pepper. Medium body - cassis, violet and vanilla with a nice round finish of cocoa.
