"Vivid ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed bouquet of fresh red berries, cherry pit, potpourri and mocha, with hints of black pepper and anise adding complexity. Spicy and expansive in the mouth, offering lively cherry and raspberry flavors and intense floral character. Silky tannins add grip and shape to the long, sappy finish. This wine received no new oak"

"The 2009 Lot #23 Cabernet Sauvignon contains 9% Cabernet Franc in its makeup and received the same elevage as the Cabernet Franc cuvee. Fragrant, racy, and expressive, it offers up scents of black cherry, black raspberry, floral notes, and Asian spices. Made in a finesse style, on the palate it has plenty of concentration, potential complexity, and a lengthy finish. Give it 2-3 years to fully unwind and drink it from 2014 to 2021"
