93+ Points ~ The Wine Advocate, December 2011
“The 2009 presents a little more richness in its fruit than the 2008, which serves to balance the firm mountain tannins. Mint, grilled herbs, flowers and licorice are some of the notes that are layered into this energetic, focused Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a great showing for 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024”
