This smells stemmy and composty, all feral with iron and green pepper and even a touch of celery. Fairly nicely balanced, rich and broad with sufficient acidity to perk things up a touch on the palate. There’s some nice fruit here as well, clear with both mineral and very gentle vegetal tones accenting the blueberryish fruit on the mid-palate that becomes more obvious on the finish. The finish is a touch short and tough, though the blueberry fruit and violet nuances do show some aromatic lift. Hopefully time will help this because today it is a bit ordinary at best. 84pts

Deeply flushed in appearance, the wine presents an overt nose of non-fruit elements: leather, buffalo jerky and North African spices. Cranberries, red cherries, plums and potting soil chime in on the palate. The mouthfeel is soft but balanced with an easy-going juiciness. The excellent balance helps the flavors hold on through a medium-finish. 13% abv

Dark red-more-than-purple in the glass. Oaky and smokey nose. Very pleasant on the tip of the tongue. Slight fruty sweetness--plums. As the wine travels through the palate tannis pop up along with some tartness. Very nice lingering finish. I would suggest is that this is not a wine for long aging, although it is an emminantly drinkable wine right now. US$18.99 at Costco.

Winemaker's Notes: Alcohol: 12.5 % Acidity: 5 g/l RS: 2.8 g/l Content: 0,75 l This is an excellent example of typical Austrian Grüner Veltliner: a dry and fresh white wine with influences of green apples, grapefruit and lemon. All this underlined by the spice of white pepper and ripe acidity

89 points: Wonderfully fragrant, with spiced currant, sweet aromatic wood, and a bit of camphor. The palate is bold, with anise and licorice over roasted cherry.The palate flavors dance around with achoholic energy. It has a good balance with fine tannins that support, and later coat the mouth.

Great with meat and spice. Bold flavors.

Nose of ripe cassis withhints of candied cherry and currant. Some very slight eucalyptus and sweet oak vanilla. On the palate, it's rich and dry. Ripe cassis, currant, black plum and black cherry with some light cocoa and oak spice. Good acid balance to this so it should age and progress nicely with a few more years' aging. I think Franciscan always delivers a solid moderately priced, good value Napa cab. 86 pts.

Sweet on the nose, taste sugary, prune and dried fruits, warm. "Narcotic" [From "Chateauneuf du Pape & Friends" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 15 September 2013.]

89-92 Points "(from vines on the Brochon side). 30% whole clusters. A high-toned red berry fruit nose that includes notes of raspberry and cranberry are liberally sprinkled with wet stone notes that introduce detailed, intense and lively middle weight flavors where more minerality can be found on the balanced, pure and harmonious finish. This is another really lovely villages and absolutely worth a look." Burghound.com, 1st Quarter, Issue 41, Allen Meadows 90 Points "The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles is elegant, sleek and refined. It shows wonderful nuance and detail in its aromas and flavors, not to mention considerable class. The vines here are 45 years old. The percentage of whole clusters was 30% here and new oak was 40%. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2029." Wine Advocate , #194 May 2011, Antonio Galloni

91-94 Points "(from an exceptionally well positioned 1 ha parcel situated directly beneath Les Petits Musigny that is combined with another less well located .35 ha parcel close to the main road). 40% whole clusters. This is quite densely fruited with floral and freshly turned earth aromas adding interest to the wild and medium-toned red berry fruit. The delicious, intense and serious broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration with ample amounts of dry extract that partially buffers the chewy and ripe tannins on the long and less austere than usual finish." Burghound.com, 1st Quarter, Issue 41, Allen Meadows

The 2009 Barolo Sarmassa is all about pure sensuality. Freshly cut roses sweet cherries raspberries mint and subtle spices are woven together in a finely knit fabric of the utmost elegance. Like the Cerequio a wine it shares so many qualities with the Sarmassa is quite rich and voluptuous in this vintage but all the elements are very much in the right place. Elegance and power are rarely this well balanced. (Magnum) Drink 2017 - 2029 Antonio Galloni.

Vivid ruby. Powerful aromas of black and blue fruits lavender and Indian spices with an exotic touch of apricot. Deeply pitched blackberry and blueberry flavors show excellent concentration and vibrancy. Finishes sweet and seamless with the blackberry and floral notes repeating. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

External Review

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve which was made from frighteningly low yields has a whopping 16.5% alcohol compared to the 2010 s 16.4 yet it is not even noticeable given the luxurious concentration and extraordinary depth and richness this wine possesses. A phenomenal example of opulence super concentration old vine viticulture and impeccable winemaking this black/blue/purple wine displays notes of spring flowers graphite blueberries blackberries licorice and some charcoal notes even though it is aged totally in old wood foudres. Given its opulence it can be drunk relatively early on but this wine will keep for15-20 years based on how slowly vintages such as 1999 and 2000 are aging. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

External Review

Dark purple at the core with slight ruby towards the rim. The nose opens with strawberry rose petal boysenberry cassis and underbrush paired with plum and sweet earth tones. This offering is full bodied and possesses wonderful richness and purity offering a structured mid palate full of supple tannins and acidity. This will benefit from another 2-3 years in bottle and enjoyed over the following 10. Solid 2009 Chateauneuf that will be ideal for the near and mid term while the bigger cuvies age. Jeff Loo.

External Review

A fresh and very Gevrey nose speaks of wild red berry and underbrush aromas that precede very supple round and sappy middle weight flavors that possess an utterly delicious finish that is shaped and supported by buried tannins and excellent length. This is quite good for its level. Burghound.
