A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2009 Pape Clement is not as dense or provocative as the 2005, but it is a worthy competitor. Tighter and more muscular than the 2005, the 2009 reveals an opaque purple color along with notes of graphite, blueberries, and blackberries, stunning richness, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and tremendous length and intensity. Some patience will be required, and I do not believe this effort will achieve the near perfection of the 2005, but it is another winner in this extraordinary vintage. Yields were 43 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine finished around 13.5% alcohol. (Tasted four times.)

A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc with a modest 13.5% alcohol the 2009 reveals considerable structure and tannin along with tell-tale notes of burning embers scorched earth graphite blueberries blackberries and toasty vanillin and a fu
