The third year in a row with below-average rainfall, 2009 will go down as being a relatively even growing season, with very few heat surges during the summer months. september provided ideal ripening conditions with 12 days in the 90°s. harvest began september 2. nearly all lots were "in the barn" prior to a looming rainstorm (6 inches) that arrived on October 12. We gathered the final few blocks on October 18. Overall, a superlative vintage.

Offering a Pomerol-like silkiness, this is very rich and layered, with ripe dark berry, roasted plum and cassis flavors. Yet what's striking is the texture, which has the density of the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. To be released spring 2013. Best from 2014 through 2026. 1,900 cases made.
