Long and tight. Racy. Lovely texture. 60 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 25 percent Merlot and 15 percent Petit Verdot. This property is really on a roll now, delivering racy and structured reds; it gives much more freshness and character to the wine. Score range: 93-96 –JS

Fabulous aromas of licorice, flowers and blackcurrants follow through to a full body with wonderful silky and caressing tannins and a long, flavorful finish. It’s complex and exceptional. Better in 2018 but so enjoyable... Fabulous aromas of licorice, flowers and blackcurrants follow through to a full body with wonderful silky and caressing tannins and a long, flavorful finish. It’s complex and exceptional. Better in 2018 but so enjoyable to taste and drink now.

It is not unusual that the 2009 La Lagune is a spectacular effort given the fact that this estate has been making terrific wines over the last decade or more. It boasts a dense purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of blueberries mulberries cassis white chocolate and subtle toasty oak. Notes of Chinese black tea cedarwood and forest floor also make an appearance in the singular aromatic and flavor profiles. This sumptuous full-bodied La Lagune possesses low acidity abundant but ripe sweet tannin and a long 45-second finish. Give this beauty 5-7 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades.

Plush seamless and sweet; full-bodied but not heavy. Pliant flavors of currant plum and earth expand to fill the mouth. Finishes with broad fine tannins and sneaky building length. Classic Old World claret from a ripe year: velvety sweet and long.

The La Lagune ‘09 has a lifted bouquet of violet, pomegranate, crushed stone and just a touch of orange peel. It is very well defined and exhibits impressive precision. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins. This is nicely balanced with good weight on the firm, masculine finish, touches of balsamic lingering on the aftertaste. This is an excellent La Lagune.

Aromatic with ripe cherry flavor good structure and a caressing finish. Exhibiting classic style this is attractive now but will be rewarding over the next two decades.
