Wine Spectator | Rating: 89A rich, chunky, firmly tannic youngster, with a concentrated core of dried currant, mineral, sage and dusty berry. Gains depth and complexity on the finish, ending with a dash of mineral and black licorice. Best from 2011 through 2017. 4,402 cases made.Author: James Laube
Rating: 16Aromas of cedar, sandalwood and sweet vanillin. Young, tight tannins at the forefront, with bright blackberry, black cherry and liquorice in the background. Rather massive and ungenerous now, it likely will reward with cellaring. (LM)Author: Linda Murphy
Wine Advocate | Rating: 88The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon has loads of floral notes intermixed with lead pencil shavings, blueberry and black currant. The wine is medium to full-bodied, and displays some white chocolate and plenty of spice. A classic Cabernet Sauvignon, it should drink nicely for 10-15 years.Author: Robert Parker
