The staggeringly rich, complex, harmonious, impeccably well-balanced 2007 IX Proprietary Red Estate (1,400 case produced) exhibits aromas of spring flowers, cedarwood, Asian spices, licorice, blueberries, and blackberries. A distinct liqueur of minerals buttresses the full-bodied, massive concentration, giving an overall impression of elegance, purity, and harmony. This is another seamless tour de force in winemaking. It should drink well for 25 or more years. (RP)
Beautiful aromas of flowers, currants, violets, and mint. The palate is incredibly elegant, full bodied, polished tannins, and beautiful fruit. A nice finish of minerals, slate, and sandalwood. This is very reserved right now, Don't touch this for another six years at least.
Classy, intense and vibrant, full-bodied and layered, with wonderful balance, this red delivers vivid blackberry, wild berry, mineral, anise and dusty, cedary oak flavors that are trim and focused, yet expansive, as they unfold. Ends with a long, detailed finish. *Collectibles* (JL)
Deep ruby-red. Very dark aromas of blueberry, blackberry and licorice. Sweet, plush and highly concentrated; at once thicker and more savory than the Cariad blend, hinting at an exotic sweetness to its sappy, powerful mountain berry and tobacco flavors. If the Cariad is Right Bank in style, this one has the tannic structure of a Pauillac, but with Napa Valley sweetness of fruit. These two wines tasted side by side were remarkably different, which is as it should be, as the two sites have little in common. (ST) 95+
