Chester-Kidder 2006 - Wine Advocate

 "Medium purple-colored, it sports an inviting perfume of sandalwood, smoke, spice box, lavender, blueberry, and blackberry. The Syrah component gives it a forward personality but there is enough structure for several years of further development. Layered, savory, and concentrated, this lengthy effort will offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2027."

Chester-Kidder 2006 - Stephen Tanzer's Intl. Wine Cellar

 "Excellent bright ruby-red. Deep aromas of black currant, licorice, spices and leather. Suave on entry, then primary, deep and sweet, with a penetrating quality to the rich dark berry, spice and mint flavors. This one has a tightly coiled spring and underlying minerality that suggest it will be long-lived. Finished clinched in a positive way, with a rising finish and broad, integrated tannins."

Chester-Kidder 2006 - Wine Enthusiast

 "It has a feminine grace and softness in teh aromas, a lovely mix of flowers and spice. The Syrah brightens up the fruit, accenting berry flavors with a hint of pepper, while the Petit Verdot adds clover and violet aromas and destiny to the tannins."
