Layers of dark red fruit come to life in this articulate pedigreed Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 needs another few years in the bottle but it is already quite striking especially with some time in the glass. Saline notes frame the long finish. The 2009 is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Malbec 5% Merlot 5% Petit Verdot 5% St. Macaire and 2% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. -Antonio Galloni

Expressive but cool nose offers cassis violet and mint. Suave concentrated and spicy with licorice mineral and oak flavors currently holding the upper hand over the wine's fruit flavors. The first tannins show some youthful toughness and will require at least five years of patience.
