Bernadotte 92js 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Lots of ripe fruit with hints of cheese and earth on the nose. Full body, with velvety tannins that are round and intense. Serious density of fruit here. Better in a year or two...92" JS 07/14 "The finest La Bernadotte made to date, this 2009 is an undeniable sleeper of the vintage. Composed of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, it reveals a dense purple color along with a big, sweet kiss of black cherries, black currants, charcoal, and spice. With layers of fruit, decent acidity, freshness, and precision, and an opulent, fleshy, succulent style..90-92" WA 04/10 "Good full red. Redcurrant, mocha and cedary, smoky oak on the ripe nose, with a hint of peppery lift. Lush, ripe and concentrated, offering a dense, thick texture for this wine and a hint of salty herbs. Nicely subtle and perfumed in the mouth. Finishes with suave tannins and sneaky length...90" IWC 07/12
