Surprisingly old school nose for an 09,
Cork was great,
14.7 abv, but couldn’t tell by the nose.
Reminds of an old Heitz or Ridge .
My first Barrett, needs an hour or 2 to come around, got a 2010 Mag, now I know not to open for awhile.

Beautiful and very approachable. Still has aging time but very drinkable.

This wine needs time and should only improve. There is subtle complexity here with Cassius and sugar plums with hints of spices and wood. This wine has silk and balance but still formidable tannins that need to calm. Look forward to tasting a bottle in a few years
