This afternoon I had the pleasure of dinning with a 2009 Chateau Haut-Bailly. Made up of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc and I can see why 09' is the vintage it is with great fineness.

There are beautiful aromas of dark fruit, black cherry, black plum, blackberry, black currant, mocha, wet soil, and minerals.

The first sip shows its elegance right away that is velvety smooth and great depth. Beautiful dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, fig, plums, black currant, graphite, and violets.

This is a full bodied wine with medium + acidity, medium+ gripping tannins with a long pleasing finish. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷🖒

Thought this was a cooler vintage wine but the tannins were riper.

Maduro wrapper, dark currant and incredibly supple. A knockout

Thank you for the generous gift.

Dark in color, black cherry, ripe aromas, creme d cassis. Very forward, but balanced with medium to full grain tannins.
