Shipping calculated at checkout.

98 points Decanter

An impressive effort in the warm 2009 vintage and, as with the 2010, this shows a slightly different profile. Needing a lot of aeration to open up, aromas reveal creosote, blackcurrant cordial, black tea and pot pourri. Layers of blackberry compote and Turkish coffee flavours combine with Earl Grey tea, tar and red bell pepper. The generous texture and viscosity gives this a hedonistic feel, with surprisingly vibrant acidity and tension for its age and vintage. (OB) (3/2020)

98 points Wine Enthusiast

A bold, muscular, striking wine with nerves of steel, this offers a dense, demanding array of black fruit threaded with veins of espresso, smoke, tar, tobacco and iron. As it bursts with exotic barrel flavor, the fruit seems a bit buried, but time after time these wines unfold over the course of decades into glorious maturity. These are arguably the most long-lived and cellarworthy wines in Washington if not in the entire country. *Cellar Selection* (PG) (9/2012)

97 points Wine Advocate

Opening with soft aromas of crème brûlée, dusty dried blackberries and aged cocoa powder, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon lingers in the glass with a firm nose and alcoholic lift. Full-bodied, the palate is slightly shy and seems to be emerging from the change, as it shows the first signs of mature elements with slightly stewed black and red fruit with a rocky essence and mineral tension, not previously seen in any of the other Cabernets of the 20-year vertical.
