A blend of just over 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot (last year I mistakenly wrote that the balance was Cabernet Franc), the opaque ruby/purple-colored 2009 reveals notes of scorched earth/burning embers/charcoal, black currants, ripe cherries and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied and pure with sweet tannin, this is an under-the-radar, high quality claret to drink over the next 20-25 years. (RP)
A wine with lovely dark berries and chocolates follows through to a full body with chewy tannins and a fit finish. Very in form. Best ever? Try in 2016.
Good full, bright ruby-red. Inviting aromas of black raspberry, graphite, charcoal, tobacco and crushed stone. Lush and thick on entry, then densely packed and fine-grained, with excellent energy and definition to its concentrated, lightly medicinal flavors of black cherry, licorice and minerals. Boasts terrific volume for this bottling, and a long finish that features building, ripe tannins. There's excellent sweetness here but the wine's youthfully medicinal character argues for at least four or five years of patience. (ST)
The 2009 Haut-Bergey has a lovely bouquet with raspberry, cranberry, rose petal and light forest floor aromas, opening beautifully in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well judged acidity, and smooth in texture although, it lacks some density and grip on the finish. Enjoy now and over the next 6 to 8 years. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. (NM)
Bright cherry and berry fruit flavors nestle in a broad, soft texture in this juicy red, which has bright acidity, modest tannins and an herbal, floral finish that's fresh and focused. Not a blockbuster, but balanced and harmonious. (TM)
