Reviews for 2009 Kirwan Bordeaux Blend

JS 94
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
This is a wine that seduces you with its crushed blackberries and hints of dark chocolate that follow through to a full body and ultra-fine tannins with a tangy fresh finish. Solid as a rock. Best ever from here. Try in 2019.

While it has weight and richness this is also seriously structured a wine packed with dry tannins. The potential is all there-the sweet fruit of the vintage along with a solid texture and final acidity. R.V.

A big powerful Margaux that should age for 20+ years this inky purple-colored wine exhibits notes of spring flowers intermixed with blackberries raspberries and cassis. Some lead pencil shavings and toasty oak are also present in this powerful yet at the same time very pure textured full-throttle Kirwan. It needs about 5-7 years of cellaring and will be among the longest-lived wines of the vintage.

Ripe and mouthfilling but with fresh acidity harnessing the core nicely keeping the dark plum blackberry and sage notes wound up while lilac sandalwood and black tea fill in on the finish. Shows lovely mouthfeel. Drink...

A true Bordeaux blend with a lovely deep red color throughout. A bit more reserved on the nose with less ripe aromas than some other Margaux producers but really lovely nonetheless. Elegant and refined aromas of red currant spice box red raspberry and graphite. The palate is dry with more red raspberry and currant flavors leading to a very fine and elegant finish. This wine should age very well for 20 or more years.
