The 2009 Red Wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet franc, Malbec, and Petit verdot. This is a riper vintage, reflecting the warm growing conditions and tiny crop that Mother Nature provided. There is plenty of freshness, but the ripe bing cherry and rich chocolaty tannins really characterize this vintage. The aroma includes red and black cherries, dark chocolate, ripe blackberries, and notes of black tea and bay leaf. The flavor on the palate reminds us of chocolate covered cherries, very juicy, and the finish continues with chocolate, dark fruit, and black tea. There is a fair amount of tannic grip, with a high volume of fine-grained tannins.
