Restrained and classic. Great depth but very wound up at the moment. Needs 10-15 years before revisiting. Tannins very firm, but this should go the distance. Great reflection of the finesse that can be shown in 2009, rather than pushing too far on ripeness.

Just at its peak. Equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with just a touch of Cabernet Franc. Concentrated and dried cherry, blueberry and prune aromas with hints of mushroom, Forrest Floor and purple flowers. Same fruits on the pallet with a beautiful viscous texture and a touch of smoke on the finish. Dense and Full! What a treat! Thanks Kasey and Pete!

Slighty underwhelmed by this, was probably not showing as it should. Give it another 10 years and judge again.
