93-95 Wine Advocate "A sleeper of the vintage, the 2009 possesses terrific opulence and layers of fruit and glycerin. This beauty should drink nicely for 10-15 years."
2009 Vintage experienced a growing season with no extremedies. This wine displays a beautiful purple color with ripe red fruit, pepper, spices, earth, and tobacco flavors. Full bodied with ripe fruit complexity, round tannins, and enough acid for a fresh finish. A merlot based wine is great with rosemary or thyme mushroom ragout of lamb with black olives. Alternatively, grilled or charred greens such as fennel, eggplant, chard and finished with Spanish Jamon is a simple pairing. Vegetarians can pear with vegetable ragout and polenta. 14.5% Alc.
