The flagship 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon comes predominantly from the famous Champoux Vineyard in which the winery is a partner. It was aged in 100% new oak. It sports a deep purple-color with a captivating nose of spice box... The flagship 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon comes predominantly from the famous Champoux Vineyard in which the winery is a partner. It was aged in 100% new oak. It sports a deep purple-color with a captivating nose of spice box sandalwood truffle Asian spices incense black cherry and black currant. Opulent on the palate (but elegant as well) it already reveals serious complexity density and succulence of fruit. Enjoyable now but with at least 8-10 years of cellaring potential this marvelous effort should have a 30 year lifespan.

Good deep ruby-red. Cassis licorice pastille violet incense and sexy smoky oak on the nose. Densely packed intense and sweet but the most backward and primary of these 2006s. Wonderfully full chocolatey fruit saturates... Good deep ruby-red. Cassis licorice pastille violet incense and sexy smoky oak on the nose. Densely packed intense and sweet but the most backward and primary of these 2006s. Wonderfully full chocolatey fruit saturates the palate. Quilceda Creek's flagship bottling has become more of a competition wine lately than this producer's examples in the '80s and '90s but this very powerful wine boasts greater vibrancy and focus than recent vintages and seems as much Pauillac in character as Napa Valley cult wine. Finishes ripe but classically dry with terrific medicinal reserve and slowly building tannins that reach the front teeth. A bit youthfully monolithic now this really demands cellaring.

Very ripe and generous. Not a big wine but brims with plum currant black olive cedar and roasted meat flavors all playing against crisp tannins and lingering on the tight finish. Needs time in the cellar in order to open... Very ripe and generous. Not a big wine but brims with plum currant black olive cedar and roasted meat flavors all playing against crisp tannins and lingering on the tight finish. Needs time in the cellar in order to open and flourish. Best from 2012 through 2020. 3200 cases made. -HS
