2009. Still so young. Tight, concentrated, and just beginning to show the delight it will eventually offer. Inky, dark, and deep. And damn alluring. Throws a very fine sediment that double decanting barely touched. Drink now, but I suggest holding for a few more years. 14.5% abv. Winery purchase.

This wine overflowed the glass with robust baked cinnamon and ripe cherry aromas. Incredibly well balanced (especially for 14.3% alcohol) with beautiful acidity. Undertones of rich cigar box and raspberry revealed themselves as I let it breathe. My favorite Cabernet experience to date.

A little tight right now. The fruit is quite muted. Not necessarily overly tannic but just a little dumb right now. Don't think it will ever be the '07 or the '10 but it should improve exponentially over time. Hold.
