My notes are surprisingly consistent with my notes from my August 2010 taste at the winery. Sure its oaky and very primary but there is nice complexity here. Dark blue fruit, orange peel and a hint of sweet spice. Nice density but not chewy. Surprising considering the blend is nearly 100% cab.
A predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon blend with Petit Verdot and a splash of Cabernet Franc. Layered nose of sour cherry, oak, vanilla, and a touch of almond. M9.39’s palate offers dense blackberry, bitter espresso grounds, sweet dark chocolate, anise, and plenty of creamy oak. The finish is dusty and vegetal. A unique modern style of winemaking not for everyone.
Tasted at the winery with Elizabeth. Dark rich heady aromatics with robust black and red berry fragrence. Very sweet ripe fruits. Nice tart flavor, great intensity. High % of petite verdot seems to give wine an inky dense quality. Sweet and sour quality to the fruit was just a bit distracting for my palate.
