I bought the 2006 cab on a recommendation by the store clerk. He described it as a classic cab, to be compared to Artemis. Without decanting this wine, it was heads and tails above Artemis, and I'll be honest here, it was better than Caymus' Special Selection. This, of course is just my opinion!! Some will disagree. But I got this wonderful cab for less than $40.00!! So in my opinion, that makes it an even better experience.
