Marked by rich, creamy mocha and vanilla-laced oak, this glides across the palate, offering vivid blueberry, anise, cedar and spice notes. Finishes gracefully, with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2022.óJ.L.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as understated today. Ripe red fruit, flowers, licorice and mint are some of the notes that emerge from this gracious, refined Cabernet Sauvignon. High-toned, floral nuances round out the finish. The 2009 had just been bottled at the time of my visit. It will be interesting to see where the wine goes from here. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.
