85 out of 100....From a 7.5-acre vineyard planted on primarily clay and limestone soils, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc is relatively austere and tannic. One of the least impressive vintages so far from Lucia, the 2006 exhibits a dark ruby/purple-tinged color along with black cherry fruit intermixed with soil undertones and a slight herbaceousness. It is awkward, somewhat disjointed, and too tannic. - WA
"(85-88) out of 100....Balanced and silky, with good fruit, fine tannins and a medium-to-long finish that's caressing. Not pushed." - WS
