A supple blend of our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2009 vintage is opulent and well-balanced. Dark and dense in color with aromas of lavender, cassis and earthy wild berry, this wine displays great depth.
It boasts stunning concentration on the palate with dark cherry, cacao, coffee bean and a hint of caramel. Finishing with full-boded tannins, this wine exhibits an undeniable finesse.
Wine Spectator 92 points - Delightfully pure, rich and polished, with a graceful mix of dark berry, black cherry, subtle baking spices and light cedary oak. Ends with fine-grained tannins well-suited for the wine’s weight and style. Drink now through 2023.—J.L. (Sep 12 2012)
