Tasting Notes

97 points Suckling: "Amazing aromas of ripe currants and plums with flowers. Full body, with super fine tannins and wonderful fruit. It is energized..." (02/12) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Big ripe fruit, packed with classic blackcurrant flavors, topped with wood and sweet, juicy fruit tannins. An impressive, solid wine yet very elegant at the same time." (04/10) 93-95 points Parker: "An inky/blue/purple color is followed by aromas and flavors of incense, flowery black currants, and subtle smoke and oak. This full-bodied 2009, which exhibits wonderful intensity, purity, and length... it is a beautiful wine that should drink well for 30+ years." (04/10) 93-96 points Tanzer's IWC: "Deep red with purple highlights. Lovely, scented nose hints at red berry cocktail, dark plum, blackcurrant and minerals, plus a hint of sweet spices. Then very smooth on the palate, with ripe black fruit and delicate spice flavors framed by lively acids and satiny tannins. Finishes long and pure, with a lingering black Note: Futures item.

    Very serious, deep and lively, with sweet fruit and classic structure. Will be one of the longest lived '09s.

    K&L's Notes: ** Powerful and very rich-quite nice. Tons of evolved fruit. At UGC: Great body and sweetness on palate. So pure. At property: Red currant aromas, with fine texture and mouthfeel. Seamless and silky. Fine depth. Tasted again in September 2010: Really coming around; sweet and lush with plenty of tannin in the mix.
