Extracted, saturated fruit with a heavy gloss of new French oak. Tastes like money.

Though this had the unfortunate experience of being consumed on the same night of the Hundred Acre, this is no slouch either. From the Harlan family, this '09 still could use another 5 years to start hitting its stride. Pretty tannic upon opening. Nose was all blackberry and Cedar notes with a small spice. Great body to this wine. Earthy and herbs, coating of plums, dates and blackberry pie. Need to try this again in the future! Great possibilities!

Love the 2009 vintage. Sleeper year and I would take almost any 2009 over its 2007 counterpart from this point forward.

Baby Grand Cru ain't bad. Oh, and there is a dog on it. Good sell in Carmel.

Archetypal Napa flavors with very attractive tannins. Bottle should weigh at least two pounds more than it does.
