95 Points Robert Parker
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.

92 Points James Halliday
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. Drink to 2020.
