Deep color. Nose of blueberry, pepper, smoked game, olive, hints of sage. On the palate, rich and dense, with gobs of fruit mostly blue and black, black olive, herbs, and vanilla. Long finish with enough cut to balance the fruit. Drink of hold, it will change but probably not get much better than this.

Popped and poured. Nose of plum, black cherry, rich vanilla, toasty oak. On the palate, cherries and plum with rich mocha. Tannins have integrated. This should drink pretty well over the next five years.

Not rated due to my relative inexperience with BA and TBA. That said, at 44 years young, this is drinking pretty well right now. Nose of raisins, orange marmalade, spice, bruised apple, and dried fruits. On the palate, thick but not cloying with baked apple, orange zest, baking spices, and hints of poached pear. Plenty of acidity on the finish but not piercing or cleansing as I had hope. A privilege to own and drink this. Gut score range 90-92. Drink or hold, these seem like they will last a long time.

Nose of spice, toffee, meyer lemon, and orange zest. On the palate, crisp apple, lemon zest, tangerine, toffee, and hints of spicy oak. Long finish with lots of acidic kick. Last bottle but I think it will hold hear for a while longer. Drink within 2-3 years.

Definitely tired but still giving pleasure. Nose of cherry, plum, and tobacco with hints of oxidation peeking through. On the palate, cherry, plum, and tobacco. Little bit of acidity peeks through. Not bad for almost forty on what was likely a $4 bottle.

Nose of black cherry and spice with hints of tea and mushroom. On the palate, black cherry, black raspberry, clove, orange tea. Decent finish. Might actually have upside from here as I did not get much heat on this.

Nose of black raspberry, leather, hints of bret, sage, and anise. On the palate, raspberry, leather, smoked meat, melted licorice and herbs. Nice finish. This one showed a hint of bret but not enough to overwhelm. Drink over the next few years. I don't think it gets better than this for this wine.

Nose of plum, black cherry, cedar, bell pepper, and tobacco. ON the palate, bright cherry, plum, mocha, bell pepper, tobacco, hints of spicy oak.

2009 Xurus Cabernet Sauvignon Sonatina Vineyard

Lake County more

5/20/2015 - GalvezGuy wrote: 89 points

Vintage Select Industry Tasting - Firehouse in the Heights: Unlike the great 2007, this one falls a little short. Feels overly manipulated with nose of vanilla, spice, black fruits and cherry. On the palate, dominated by oak with vanilla, and mocha with cherry and blackberry. Finish is dominated by oak. Drink over the near term before the oak dries out.

Vintage Select Industry Tasting - Firehouse in the Heights: From the color and nose, this has some obvious oak treatment. Nose of pineapple, grapefruit, with hints of spice. On the palate, creamy with pineapple and grapefruit flavors. Nice finish but the oak detracts a little.
