"Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Well-defined Cabernet currants are teamed up with a nice bit of briary spice and top notes of vanilla in the deep and moderately intense nose of this immediately likeable wine

Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Bigger, riper and more fully stuffed than Lancaster's Estate Cabernet, this very expressive working is similarly longer on oak, and its generous themes of cassis are colored by plenty of sweet, slightly toasty spice. Well-structured and quite rich on the palate, it picks up a scant note of burnt coffee beans at the very end, and its pushy, somewhat toothpicky astringency needs to be tempered by a several more years in the bottle.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Well-defined Cabernet currants are teamed up with a nice bit of briary spice and top notes of vanilla in the deep and moderately intense nose of this immediately likeable wine, and its very solid, clean-as-can-be flavors are wholly consonant with the nose. It is supple and smooth with a trim bit of tannin, and it shows fine potential for a few years of growth.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate includes small quantities of Malbec, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Revealing a deep ruby/purple color, a big, intense, masculine mouthfeel, and plenty of power and tannin, it needs time to round into an accessible win... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 92 A very fine Cabernet. Not quite in the league of the '04 and '05, but rich and complex, a wine to drink now and over the next few years. Shows sweet tannins and accessible flavors of wild blackberries, currants, herbs and smoky cedar. Wine Tasting Notes Estate grown, produced and bottled, our Cabernet Sauvignon has lush ripeness, with deep black cherry and plum characters, accented by lavender and spice. Supportive tannins provide structure for the rich fruit, and layers of complexity carry over the long finish. Aged 22 months in French oak barrels, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered, to retain purity of expression.
