At times it shows a little more depth power and richness than the Hexameter but both wines are compelling. Endless layers of fruit saturate the palate as this rich intense wine conquers the heart and intellect. A totally vivid wine the 2009 is even more impressive from bottle than it was from barrel. Over the time I followed it the 2009 gained finesse and elegance in the glass which bodes quite well for the future. Intense graphite crushed rocks and pencil shaving nuances add energy to the polished huge finish. The blend is 58% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Cabernet Franc 8% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. 98+ -Antonio Galloni

With a beautiful purple color this wine quickly exhibits classic Cabernet aromas of black currants and cedar. In the mouth it's full bodied and concentrated showing powerful sweet blackberry fruit. It's incredibly refined... With a beautiful purple color this wine quickly exhibits classic Cabernet aromas of black currants and cedar. In the mouth it's full bodied and concentrated showing powerful sweet blackberry fruit. It's incredibly refined impressively structured massive impeccable and frankly delicious. This should develop over the next 20 years at least. - S.H.

Dark ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of blackberry cassis shoe polish minerals menthol and dusty earth.

Vibrant aromas of blackberry cassis shoe polish minerals menthol and dusty earth. Suave and claret-like even a bit strict in the early going conveying a strong crushed stone character that gives the wine a powerful spine. Tightly wound and youthfully clenched but already showing considerable personality. Lay this down.
