Wine Advocate 92 points - The O. Fournier 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (50%)-Syrah (50%) spent 20 months in new French and American oak before bottling without fining or filtration. It is deep purple in color with legs that coat the glass while displaying an enticing nose of cigar box, pencil lead, smoked meat, violets, black currant, and blueberry. Plush and mouth-filling, it has excellent volume and balance with enough structure to evolve for several years. It will offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2021.
Wine Spectator 92 points - This rich red mixes juicy black cherry, blackberry and spicy plum notes with fine-tuned layers of mesquite, game and mocha notes. Well-built, displaying fine tannins and a long, minerally finish. Drink now through 2016. 200 cases imported. –NW
