International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 163

Moderately saturated dark red. Expressive nose offers redcurrant, tobacco leaf, licorice and cedar. A spicy, energetic midweight with enticing sweetness to its juicy raspberry, redcurrant and tree bark flavors. Finishes with serious dusty tannins and lovely lingering red berry flavor.

Mid crimson. Can’t explain why but this really, really reminds me of Sassicaia on the nose! Lifted and polished but not at all sickly. I really like this! Great balance but nothing earthbound about it. Nice dry finish.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 199

The finest d'Armailhac I have tasted to date, the 2009 is largely Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) blended with a big wallop of Merlot (25%) and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Its dense purple color is followed by a big, sweet kiss of asphalt, black currants, mocha, barbecue smoke, cedar and spice. This medium to full-bodied, well-made, impressively endowed Pauillac should drink well for 20+ years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

This has density, structure and drive, offering seriously dark baker's chocolate, plum, currant and fig flavors all wound up tightly by singed cedar, tar and dark tapenade notes, with a tight, mineral-driven finish. Needs a little time to unwind.

Once again, I totally disagree with Wine Spectator. This wine has been living off its pedigree without delivering the goods. This has plenty of fruit but no depth or body. Very thin and this will not improve with age.
