"Aromas of raspberries, blackberries, lavender and dried rose. The perfumed fruit is met with sweet spices. The palate unfolds slowly with ripe wild berry and dusty cherry through a pronounced and rounded mid-palate. The tannins have a softened persistence. The finish is elegant and smooth. The Bordeaux qualities of flavor and structure shine in this vintage."

Tasting Notes
Remarkably beautiful nose with aromas of blackberries and violets. There are scents of fresh perfumey fruit with just enough sweet oak to tether it down a bit. As the pallet continues to develop, the rich, ripe blackberries arise to a big rounded mid-palate. The tannins have some grip to them and there is a long powerful finish. This wine has all the elements to age beautifully over time.
Ratings
Wine Spectator 92 Points. Bold, rich and extracted, with dense, concentrated cherry, currant, fresh earth, mineral and sage. Full-blown and well-structured, ending with chewy tannins. Best from 2010 through 2016.—J.L. Wine Enthusiast 93 Points. A beautiful Cabernet that stakes out its style of soft approachability and complexity, but will also age well. Impressively structured and dry, it shows rich flavors of blackberries, black currants and fresh herbs. Best now–2014. - S.H. (12/15/2009) The Wine Advocate 91 Points. Owners Michele and John Anthony Truchard have fashioned a 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon that reveals an attractive nose of vanilla, black currants, and spice box as well as polished, supple tannins. This outstanding effort should improve over the next 3-4 years, and keep for 15-20. –Robert Parker (12/2009)
