Floral and precise fruit with blackberry-skin character and mineral undertones. Full-bodied with superfine tannins and a fresh clean finish. Long and tight. Racy. Lovely texture. 60 percent Cabernet Sauvignon 25 percent... Floral and precise fruit with blackberry-skin character and mineral undertones. Full-bodied with superfine tannins and a fresh clean finish. Long and tight. Racy. Lovely texture. 60 percent Cabernet Sauvignon 25 percent Merlot and 15 percent Petit Verdot. This property is really on a roll now delivering racy and structured reds; it gives much more freshness and character to the wine.

It is not unusual that the 2009 La Lagune is a spectacular effort given the fact that this estate has been making terrific wines over the last decade or more. It boasts a dense purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of blueberries, mulberries, cassis, white chocolate and subtle toasty oak. Notes of Chinese black tea, cedarwood and forest floor also make an appearance in the singular aromatic and flavor profiles. This sumptuous, full-bodied La Lagune possesses low acidity, abundant but ripe, sweet tannin and a long, 45-second finish. Give this beauty 5-7 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, July 2012
Deep, bright ruby-red. Sexy aromas of currant, underbrush, leather and toasty oak. Plush, seamless and sweet; full-bodied but not heavy. Pliant flavors of currant, plum and earth expand to fill the mouth. Finishes... Deep, bright ruby-red. Sexy aromas of currant, underbrush, leather and toasty oak. Plush, seamless and sweet; full-bodied but not heavy. Pliant flavors of currant, plum and earth expand to fill the mouth. Finishes with broad, fine tannins and sneaky building length. Classic Old World claret from a ripe year: velvety, sweet and long.

Aromatic with ripe cherry flavor good structure and a caressing finish. Exhibiting classic style this is attractive now but will be rewarding over the next two decades.
