91 points Wine Spectator: "Blackberry, blueberry and plum aromas, with hints of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a mineral, currant and licorice aftertaste. A little austere, but structured. dense, Impressive. Best after 2014." (Insider, 01/09)) K&L's notes - Meaty, spicy and full bodied. Tons of ripe fruit. Fine tannins, This is exceptional. Tasted again and the wine is quite long and deep on the palate. Sweet, complete, and lovely wine. This has it all. ** Ralph Sands: Great freshness in the fruit with strength and spice all beautifully integrated. Alex Brisoux: Black fruit, smoky, meaty, dense wine, very nice structure, concentrated finish. On 01/23/09: one of the better 2006s. Full of black fruit flavors that linger on the palate.
