94 • Jarvis 2006 Estate Grown, Cave Fermented, "Lake William Blend", Napa Valley $105. Cellar Selection.
Deep violet garnet color. Complex aromas and flavors of dried cassis, creme brulee, olive, leather, spice, and cocoa. Rich and sinewy on the palate with a dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a long, chewy cedar, roasted vegetable, and slate accented, chewy tannin finish. A powerful and brooding red blend to serve with prime rib and porterhouse. (tasted on Aug-09-2010)

84 • Jarvis 2006 Estate Grown, Cave Fermented, Cabernet Franc, Napa Valley $65. Cellar Selection.|Find-a-Wine|
Nearly opaque deep garnet violet color. Unusual aromas of stewed okra, artichokes, green tomatoes, and mulberries follow through on a bold, round entry to a dryish medium-to-full body with pencil cedar and spice notes and a long, very firm, earthy, and woody cotton tannin finish. Needs time. (tasted on Jul-29-2010)
