90 points "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 wine, but it shows good balance, structure, and purity.""

92 points "WE 92pts. - According to the Wine Enthusiast: 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. Winemaker 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...." Best 2011-2014
