The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Ashmead is a single vineyard selection aged for 18 months in new French 300-liter barrels (aka hogsheads). It offers up a superb bouquet of pain grille pencil lead scorched earth espresso spice box black currant and blackberry liqueur. Opulent on the palate it has gobs of succulent black fruit well-concealed ripe tannins impeccable balance and a long finish. Cellar it for 5-7 years and drink it from 2014 to 2028. --Jay Miller

James Halliday, July 2009
An elegant medium-bodied wine with some regional dusty/earthy inputs adding to complexity; the French oak is well integrated with blackcurrant fruit and a clean finish.

Opaque ruby color. Powerfully scented bouquet of spicy red and dark berry liqueurs cherry mocha and incense. Lush and creamy on the palate with flavors of blackberry boysenberry and succulent herbs. Tannins slowly build... Opaque ruby color. Powerfully scented bouquet of spicy red and dark berry liqueurs cherry mocha and incense. Lush and creamy on the palate with flavors of blackberry boysenberry and succulent herbs. Tannins slowly build on the focused spicy finish. --Josh Raynolds
