2006 Forman Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1049844 93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2006 Cabernet from Ric Forman is aging beautifully and is starting to really drink well at a dozen years out from the vintage. The complex nose is really quite a synthesis of Bordeaux sensibilities and Howell Mountain fruit, offering up scents of cassis, dark berries, cigar smoke, a bit of tobacco leaf, a fine undertow of gravelly soil elements, a very discreet base of cedary oak and again, just a touch of subtle eucalyptus in the upper register. On the palate the wine is complex, full-bodied, focused and classy, with fine mid-palate depth, melting tannins and excellent focus and grip on the long, open and very classy finish. Again, this is plenty ripe, but does not show it on the nose at all and is beautifully balanced on the palate. Impressive juice. Inner quote mark (7/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One of the top wines of the vintage, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet, fragrant nose of acacia flowers, charcoal, black currant liqueur, licorice, and forest floor. Atypically opulent with sweet velvety tannins (especially for a 2006), it reveals impressive purity and texture as well as a full-bodied, rich finish. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright, dark ruby-red. Fresh but youthfully imploded on the nose, hinting at urgent blackberry accented by eucalyptus. At once glossy and virile on the palate, showing a lovely core of sweetness and a tactile mouthfeel to its primary dark fruit, menthol and spicy oak flavors. Finishes savory, dry and long, with big tongue-coating tannins that still require cellaring. This should be long-lived. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (7/2015)
