Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, February 2012
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.

The finest d'Armailhac I have tasted to date the 2009 is largely Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) blended with a big wallop of Merlot (25%) and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Its dense purple color is followed by a big sweet kiss of asphalt black currants mocha barbecue smoke cedar and spice. This medium to full-bodied well-made impressively endowed Pauillac should drink well for 20+ years.

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.

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.
