Cellar/Tasting Notes
From the first pour of this wine, the explosion of diverse and complez aromas are evident. On the nose, there are raspberries, blackberries, cigars, cedar, coffee and licorice. On the palate, the wine is soft, and once is expands, it invades the senses. The mature tannins monopolize and portray the full concentration of the wine. The tannic structure is carried by the amazing freshness of the wine.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 94
A somewhat under-the-radar La Mission, the 2006 was generally overlooked following the brilliance of the 2005. A young, dense purple-hued wine that is developing beautifully, it exhibits notes of Asian plum sauce, charcoal, barbecue smoke, roasted meats, graphite and background oak. Full-bodied with good acidity, moderate tannin and a vigorous, powerful youthfulness, the 2006 will age more quickly than the 2005, but it still requires another 5-8 years of cellaring.
Wine Spectator (WS): 95
Almost jammy, with vanilla bean and coffee undertones. Full-bodied and very powerful, with big, juicy tannins and a long finish. Very big and generous for the vintage, showing exceptional quality. Best after 2015.
