The finish is fruity long and stylish. Give it three years to come together. Best after 2013.

It shows terrific energy freshness and vibrancy from start to finish. Cassis blackberries mint spices and new leather are all woven together nicely in the 2009. Firm yet well-integrated tannins support the finish. Although quite overt today the 2009 appears to have the structure to age well for a number of years. The 2009 is a serious wine with a bright future. Both bottles I tasted were immensely pleasing. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

A deeply colored, meaty red, with dense tannins framing smoky cherry and plum flavors. A powerhouse, gaining suppleness with air. Fine length, needing time to resolve its tannins. Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2023. – BS
