Critical Acclaim

Connoisseurs' Guide

This immense, deeply fruited, lavishly oaked wine is all about the future, and, despite showing loads of highly concentrated, black currant character, it is prohibitively tannic for near term drinking. It is also as rich and as precise in its varietal Cabernet Sauvignon focus as any wine tasted in some time.

The Wine Advocate

Chocolate, cassis, licorice, cedar, and soil undertones dominate the fragrant aromatics of the dense purple-colored 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. A big wine with enviable purity as well as harmony, and a long finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 15-25 years.
