I am not the one who should review the Wine Spectator's choice for the #3 wine of 2009. I could not resist observing, however, that this is one huge hunk of vino. It has savory flavors and an intensity that are truly awe-inspiring. This is serious wine. It almost tastes like a major Burgundian beef dinner. I will be watching as it evolves and hope to have the vocabulary to describe it as it does.

Tested on a well-aired bottle, about 70 deg F. Alluring nose of spice, dark fruit, floral, and earth, in excellent balance and expression. Lively acid on the attack, dark fruit (plums or prunes?, blackberry, other) somewhat in the background with meaty and spicy notes. Finishes of same elements with extra wood. Dryish. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium.

This was one of the worst bottles of wine I ever had. Over oaked, unbalanced...covered red fruit flavors.

Had at Vieux Telegraphe tasting by Daniel Brunier. Wish I had taken more notes, but I did write "good finish."

The smell is of tobacco or cigar box taste of black cherry. It is very light in the mouth but the taste lingers in a very good way

2007 is one of the best vintages of Napa. This wine is clearly has some potential. However, it is not time yet to drink it. This is one of the wines that you would lay down for 4 to 7 years from now. It is still very tight and is not offering its atmosphere yet. It has a nice good color. On the nose, black fruits are dominating. Blueberry, blackberry, cassis, and dark chocolate. Also there is a little hint of licorice. On the palate, very dry, big, bold, very tannic, a bit bitter finish, a lot of dark chocolate going on, balanced. It is still tight and has not a lot of things to offer right now! This is no way a 94 bottle of wine. Yes, this wine will evolve in the next 4 to 7 years, but I just cannot see how this wine has been give such a very high score! I am 88 on this effort.

Ripe and flavorful, with bright cherry, currant, plum, sage and mineral flavors that are complex and focused. The tannins are a bit rough and chewy now, so cellar short-term. Best from 1999 through 2004.

A big, sturdy, dry Cabernet, rich in tannins, and filled with blackberries, cherries, currants and oak. Tasty, but lacking in acidity and stuffing for the long haul, so drink soon.

A smooth, sleek, richly flavored wine, with intense black cherry and blackberry fruit that's shaded by earthy, cedary overtones. Finish is long, gushing and fruity. Drink now through 2009.

The 2007 Vieux Telegraphe may be the greatest wine made at this property since the 2005 and 1998.

Supple and fruity, with creamy cherry, plum and berry notes that are elegant and polished, finishing with hints of coffee and spice. Best from 1999 through 2005.

Smooth red currant flavors come up against meatier aspects to the tannins, where the wine feels a little rough and vegetal. A grilled steak will cancel out those tannins and bring the juicier flavors forward.
