The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon appears to have clamped down a bit since I tasted it last year. An unusually up-front juicy wine from Forman the 2009 is laced with expressive dark red fruit flowers mint cinnamon licorice and menthol. There is a softness and suppleness to the 2009 that is impossible not to love. Layers of fruit continue to build on the juicy silky finish. The 2009 looks to be one of the more accessible wines of the vintage but it also needs at least several years to lose some of its baby fat and primary notes. The French oak is also a bit prominent providing one clue as to the wine's ultimate potential vis-a-vis the monumental 2010. The 2009 is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon 12% Cabernet Franc 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.-Antonio Galloni

93+ Bright, full ruby-red. Explosive nose offers raspberry, blackberry, leather, mint and a hint of pepper. Svelte, glossy and elegant, offering compelling inner-mouth lavender and violet perfume to its layered flavors... 93+ Bright, full ruby-red. Explosive nose offers raspberry, blackberry, leather, mint and a hint of pepper. Svelte, glossy and elegant, offering compelling inner-mouth lavender and violet perfume to its layered flavors of purple and black fruits, spices and celery seed. Boasts lovely harmony of components and finishes very long, with building dusty tannins. This is pliant enough to give pleasure relatively early but is still quite primary.
