It is a relatively open vintage that nevertheless possesses stunning intensity depth and elegance. Dark red berries flowers mint and spices are all woven together beautifully. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the long seductive finish. The 2009 continues to flesh out in the glass. All of the elements are in the right place in the drop-dead gorgeous stunning 2009. A haunting bouquet reminiscent of a great Musigny lingers on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

Aromas of blackberry licorice and stone show a youthfully medicinal quality. Displays sweet fruit on entry but this is more like a tightly coiled spring on the mid-palate conveying a distinctly imploded character today. Densely packed juicy and spicy wine with a firm tannic spine and terrific length and lift. This very powerful wine which appears to have more seed tannins than the 2008 will need a good decade of bottle aging upon release.
