Wine Spectator 93
"Big yet nuanced, with tiers of cedar, dark berry, black licorice,gravel and road tar, this is intense, chewy and tannic, with an underlying measure of finesse and detail. Drink now through 2024." ~JL

"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, juicy wine loaded with dark fruit, mocha, spices and new leather. This rich, expansive Cabernet boasts tons of class and sheer personality. Mint, licorice and spices add complexity as the dark fruit fleshes out on the finish. This is a fabulous wine for the money. The Cabernet is made from To Kalon, Dr. Crane, Las Piedras, Stagecoach and Hyde, and includes a dollop of Petit Verdot from Stagecoach. It is a fabulous effort from Paul Hobbs. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021"
"Growing Season: 2009 began with an abundance of spring rain followed by mild, steady summer temperatures that set the stage for nearly ideal growing conditions. The well-set fruit ripened slowly allowing for an excellent balance of sugars and acids to develop. The resulting wines can be characterized as elegant and rich with profound depth and structure.
Displaying a black garnet hue, this sophisticated cabernet sauvignon opens up to lavender, cassis, cocoa powder, pencil shaving and damp earth. The fruit is pure and elegant, showing boysenberry and blackberry with layers of graphite, leading to a focused and polished wine." ~ Winery notes
