Full-bodied with ultra fine tannins. This wine is all about texture with phenomenal tannins and subtle fruits that just make you think. Evocative. It is layered yet changes all the time. I can't believe it really. Speechless. Amazes me. Try in 2020.

An absolutely prodigious blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot the 2009 Lafleur displays the tell-tale characteristics of this great estate. Kirsch liqueur licorice and floral notes are intermixed with raspberry in a very full-bodied super-intense opulent and multi-dimensional style. Extraordinarily dense and pure but not heavy by any means the intensity texture and richness of the 2009 Lafleur are reminiscent of the perfect 1982. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040.

This gushes with mouthwatering blueberry boysenberry and blackberry fruit leading to a long black tea- and incense-filled finish. Darkens up considerably as it airs with layers of extra flesh Kenya AA coffee and charcoal notes striding through the finish. Shows an exotic side and gorgeous mouthfeel. Best from 2015 through 2030. 950 cases made. -JM
