The '09 is all about big black cherry on the nose along with notes of anise, steak sauce and sous bois. Savory on the palate with fine tannins and light anise on the long finish. Very rich. Would like to revisit in 5-10 years. From Rutherford Ava

I don't recall what vintage I had, previously, but I recall being more impressed. Don't get me wrong - this was good - just not great.

Also consumed a few weeks ago, Gerhard Reisacher was really hitting it out of the park with his wines from the early 2000s. This one was still going strong (although I suspect it's a bit past peak). Just a hint of amber on the rim, the wine is exhibiting plenty of fruit along with secondary aromas of leather and dried cassis. Started to fade toward the end of the bottle, but just a terrific example of a cab from the Rutherford bench.

Not a bad wine, but nowhere close to some of the other vintages, such as the '03 or '05

Paired with grilled lamb and good friends. Fantastic. Everything Gerhard touches is outstanding.
