Potentially a great cab but very young in 10'. 3 to 4 more year of patience may give life to this bottle. After aging this bottle 3 and a half years, this amazing Cabernet Sauvignon had been vindicated since my recommendation. Valentine's day 2014

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Cabernet's herbal, mildly peppery side is given a fair bit of play here, and, if complex and reasonably weighty with a good sense of extract, the wine is also a bit sluggish and dragged down by both heat and tannin. It is not without richness but it wants for grace, and it ends with a few too many angle and edges to work its way up to full commendation.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

What could have been a very difficult vintage for Bordeaux varietals in Santa Ynez Valley, one plagued by cool weather and severe shatter, has turned out to be a watershed year for our Star Lane Cabernet. In addition to the power and complexity of our previous vintage, we have found a new sense of grace and sophistication in the wine that had been lacking in '05. Licorice accented black cherry and cassis fruit gives way to sweet herb and mocha shadings. On the palate the wine is full yet fresh, and there is a vibrancy to the fruit character that is unique to the '06 vintage. A very tightly wound, high-strung wine upon bottling, the 2006 Star Lane Cabernet has opened itself up into a fresh and striking mouthful that begs both immediate enjoyment and long term cellaring. Drink now or cellar for up to 15 years. - Winery ** Only 8 in Stock **
