  • NR as this bottle drank so differently over the time we had it, refer to my first note on this wine for most of what we experienced, this time - overall - it was too oaky and too rich, but there were moments when the acid held up and we liked it... not sure this will last well so i'd decant two hours ahead and then drink up

  • not quite as rich as the bottle at Alta in February, almost like this bottle was slightly shut down, fruit was more in balance with the minerals and oak and still a good bottle but not it's best showing... will wait on the last for another year or two

  • wow what a blockbuster, nothing shut down about this baby... nose and palate came charging out of the gate, the first two comments from the tasters -- "RICH" and "RICH", started with lime and tart apple, good acid to balance the 'bigness', loads of minerals, you can tell the oak is there but feels well done and dare i say appropriate given the underlying material here... if you like subtle white burg then this isn't for you, if not buy some, and drink over next 3-4 yrs... drank at Alta / Snowbird (9k elevation), thx Joe

  • Very round and rich, but there's some acidity to keep it in check. Nose is tropical fruit, almonds, spices, and some oak. Really has a great delicious factor. Won't be a long-term ager, maybe another 3-5 years to peak. No need for food with this.

  • Pop and pour, no need for air. A very good 2009 CM full of rich and ripe tropical fruit, oak toast and some spice. Rich and round mouth with some adequate acidity to keep it interesting. Very nice wine that you have to be in the mood for but when you are it hits that sweet spot.
