Tasting Notes:

94 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2006 Pluribus, like all of these Cabernet Sauvignons, is youthful, with an opaque purple color and a big, sweet nose of blueberry liqueur intermixed with spring flowers and wet rocks. Full-bodied, powerful, and backward, with sweet tannin but formidable structure, this wine needs to be cellared for 4-5 years and drunk over the following 25 years. (RP) 12/2009)

94 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

Bright dark ruby. Very dark scents of blackberry, cassis, espresso and licorice are lifted by a minty accent. Intensely flavored and deep, displaying a sexy juicy quality to its St. Julien/Pauillac flavors of black cherry, bitter chocolate and licorice. Slightly elevated alcohol here but the wine has the sweetness and depth of flavor–and personality–to support it, not to mention the tangy acidity. This wonderfully lush, rich wine has real spine and structure. (ST, for Vinous) (6/2017)

94 points Vinous

The 2006 Pluribus is a pleasant surprise from this largely overlooked vintage. All things considered, the 2006 has retained striking freshness and energy. There is plenty of raciness to the blue/purplish fruit, along with the heavy oak signature that was the norm at the time. Even so, the 2006 has aged beautifully. (AG) (11/2017)
