(14.5% alcohol; 37% St. Helena, 23% Lampyridae, 14% Vogt, 11% Chabot, 9% Rancho del Oso, 4% Marston and 2% Petit Verdot): Bright, saturated ruby-purple color. High-toned aromas of crushed boysenberry, blackbery liqueur, licorice pastille and violet. Densely packed, big and rich but not heavy, with penetrating acidity buffering the sweetness of the dark berry fruit. This rather powerful midweight finishes with lush, sweet tannins and excellent length. Quite structured, firm and fresh for a 2009 Cabernet. When I mentioned to Laurie Hook that this wine struck me as a bit high in volatile acidity, she responded that virtually all of these wines are between 0.65 and 0.75 ppm.

Intense and rustic, with a rangy mix of dried berry, earth, leather, roasted herb and tobacco leaf flavors. A cool-year Cabernet that should benefit from cellaring, yet will always show its sturdy build. Best from 2014 through 2026.óJ.L.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a beautifully balanced wine. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame a core of dark red berries, flowers, mint, spices and licorice. The Reserve shows lovely inner perfume and mid-palate juiciness. It should drink well with a minimum of cellaring. The main vineyards in the 2009 are Home (37%), Lampyridae (23%), Vogt (14%), Chabot (11%) and Rancho del Oso (9%). Each lot was aged separately for about two years before the final blend was assembled. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.
