Barrel sample. A fine and spicy wine, the wood toast well integrated with the sweet fruit. Deliciously ripe Merlot vies with the Cabernet tannins to give a dark, complex wine.

On the toasty, more modern side of the spectrum, with ambitious roasted fig, apple wood and blueberry confiture notes followed by racy graphite, espresso and blackberry pâte de fruit. Not shy, but has the density for balance. Best from 2013 through 2024. 18,080 cases made.

The 2009 has very fine lift on the floral, almost Margaux-like bouquet with vivacious red cherries and wild strawberry. Good definition here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and an almost Burgundian texture. Very polished and focused, perhaps showing a little too much oak towards the finish, but certainly one of this estate's best wines in recent years.
