Found another one of these ‘09 beauties. Deep ruby with aromas of coffee and chocolate wrapped in dark fruits. On the palate well pronounced pleasant flavors of black fruits, blackberry and ripe cherry, cassis, espresso and bittersweet cacao. The wine had plenty of oak and well-structured tanins. This wine should continue to age well. WOW!

Anniversary wine, our last dinner at Benny's Chop House before it closes. One of our favorite wines is a great way to say farewell to our favorite steakhouse. So long Benny's, we'll miss you.

I know I opened this way too early... but it's still delicious! Tart blackberries but as the wine keeps opening up its nicely mellowing.

Absolutely fantastic! As good or better than the Caymus 2011 Spesial Selection we had on my birthday.
