Deliciously fruity with chocolate notes and acidity. The wine has dense but soft tannins that merge seamlessly into the black fruits. It is ripe sweet densely juicy.

This has density structure and drive offering seriously dark baker's chocolate plum currant and fig flavors all wound up tightly by singed cedar tar and dark tapenade notes with a tight mineral-driven finish. Needs a little time to unwind. Best from 2013 through 2023.

The 2009 Château d'Armailhac has a lovely nose, the Cabernet Sauvignon component more expressive compared to my previous encounter, graphite infusing the generous black fruit that is in keeping with the style. The palate is medium-bodied with touches of cherry liqueur and spice on the entry, the Merlot in the driving seat with good acidity and a lively, spicy finish with tobacco, hickory and black pepper on the aftertaste. It is a delicious d'Armailhac that is just about ready to rock 'n roll. Tasted August 2016. - Neal Martin

Expressive nose offers redcurrant tobacco leaf licorice and cedar. A spicy energetic midweight with enticing sweetness to its juicy raspberry redcurrant and tree bark flavors. Finishes with serious dusty tannins and lovely lingering red berry flavor.

Definitely a wine with great concentration and is super chewy on the palate. I get notes of red and black fruits dark chocolate coffee and baking spices. Good length and medium grained tannins.
