    A textbook Leoville-Barton, the fantastic '09 opens with pure crushed currant aromas and a lovely, leafy undercurrent of Cabernet complexity--just a beautiful nose. Black fruits on the palate are supported by elegant tannins. While the wine is still in its youth, the fruit expression and overall balance suggest a long life ahead.

    77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22.5% Merlot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc. Probably the best I’ve tasted from Anthony and I have been tasting his wines since 1973. Tons of fruit masks the high tannin levels-will age for a very long time. 95 points! Still a superb buy for the cellar. Cb 2015

    Deep, grapey, masculine wine. It was really good the second time we tasted it.

    This is a dark brooding wine that takes some time to reveal it’s fruit. The cherry and blackberry flavors are slightly masked by light new wood flavors at the beginning, but the blackberry comes to the fore in the mid-palate along with a new spicy element that gradually leads to you back to the wood. The oak climbs back onto the palate, closing down the spicy fruit and finishing up with a burst of tannins. A superb wine that left me to pondering how much more this wine is going to expand with a few more years (decades?) of aging.
