Dark red fruit tobacco flowers and licorice emerge from this massive powerful wine. The Reserve fleshes out beautifully on the palate as the fruit gains dimension and volume. Hints of licorice menthol and tar wrap around the powerful structured finish. This is a dazzling showing from Snowden. The 2009 harvest was not an easy one but Diana Snowden Seysses did a brilliant job coping with the October rains. In 2009 the blend is 75.5% Cabernet Sauvignon 19.1% Merlot 3.8% Cabernet Franc and 1.6 % Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.94+

Turkish coffee and dark chocolate aromas on the nose. Black cherry and red fruit flavors along with spice and minerality combine on the palate with firm tannins and good acidity to give structure to this powerful wine. A clean finish with good length. Decant tonight or hold and watch it develop over the next 3-15 years.
