An impressive Cabernet, flashy and dramatic in the "cult" style. It's smooth and velvety, with imposingly rich tannins that frame ripe, pure black currant, crème de cassis, dark chocolate and anise flavors. There's a lot of oak, too, but it's in keeping with the wine's volume. Should develop over the next 15 years, but you can certainly drink it now.
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Il Barone is a beautifully focused wine graced with expressive dark berries, flowers, spices and mint. It reveals lovely focus and energy from start to finish. The mid-palate sweetness and generosity tapers off a bit on the finish, which is the only thing that keeps the score from going higher. The final blend includes 2% Petite Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. (AG)
