A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Syrah, 17% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc that spent 30 months in 100% new French oak, the 2009 Red Wine Chester-Kidder is made by Long Shadow’s manager, Gilles Nicault, and comes from a variety of vineyards in the Columbia Valley. A big, rich wine that does everything right, it has an inky purple color to go with intense creme de cassis, raspberry, toast and spiced meat aromas on the nose. Surprisingly polished and supple on the palate, with juicy acidity, it has layers of fruit, a medium to full-bodied texture and serious length on the finish. Enjoy it over the coming 10-12 years. Drink now-2025. (JD)
Good bright, full ruby. Aromas of currant, licorice, milk chocolate and graphite. Silky, pliant and concentrated, with sappy dark berry and dark chocolate flavors lifted by spices. Still a bit youthfully bound-up. Has the richness of 2009 without any heaviness--and not at all dry despite the long wood aging. Still a bit reduced on the back end, finishing with broad, dusty tannins and classic dryness. (a blend based on cabernet sauvignon and syrah; 30 months in oak)
The firm tannins surround a pulsing core of blackberry, currant and subtle spice flavors, persisting intently onto a long and expressive red pepper-inflected finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2015 through 2019. 989 cases made. (HS)
