To me this is more balanced and restrained than many of the higher priced single vineyards. I am not getting the hot over extracted that others have commented. What a fabulous wine. There is nothing close for the price.
Tried twice in a week - first was at a group tasting where this was opened along side the 2010 version. The '09 was hot, hard to delineate underlying fruit flavors. Later in the week opened up my last one of these to see if the first bottle was a fluke. Nope, unfortunately. Sat heavy again, out of balance. Would say drink up - make room for the arrving spring shipments!
