Gloria St Julien Red Blend 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"There have been many great Glorias over the years as this property consistently over-performs. The 2009 may be the finest yet produced. Loaded with notes of Christmas fruitcake intermixed with red and black currants, licorice, spice box, and blackberries, this inky/purple-colored wine is atypically full-bodied with a viscous texture, and loads of tannin, extract, and richness. Deep and layered, it will offer thrilling sipping over the next 25+ years...91-93" WA 04/10

Plush, full bodied. Wet tobacco and blackcurrent fruit at the start, with a slight touch of pencil shavings, on a base of dark plum, almost prune base. Good tannins with a very long, smooth finish. Very Nice! Overall, many strongpoints to this wine, with few, if any weaknesses. Tasted Nov 2012.

65% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot. Made in the same cellars and same style as Chateau Saint Pierre, this is one of the best value wines from St. Julien for the 2009 vintage. Aromas of blackberry and black cherr... Alex Shaw.

Crushed blackberries and fresh herbs on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Solid core of everything here. Right up there with the 2005 Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Chateau Gloria St. Julien 3000ml
