The 4400-case cuvee of 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (96% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc) is brilliant. It would probably be hard to find a Cabernet Sauvignon of this quality with this production level all estate fruit and such impeccable viticulture and winemaking. This wine reminded me of a great vintage of Pontet Canet in Pauillac Bordeaux. The deep creme de cassis flavors intermixed with charcoal and lead pencil shavings soar from the glass. Its full body stunning ripeness sweet tannin and substantial flavor authority make for a brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next two decades.

Enticing aromas of currant chocolate graphite violet loam and spices. Lush suave and sweet with a firm edge of acidity giving a tactile quality to the currant and graphite flavors. Less tight in the middle than the Firebelle but tannic for this cuvee and built to age.
