International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 162

(60% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot, 14% cabernet franc and 6% petit verdot; from a very warm site rich in decomposed shale on the upper fork of Crystal Springs Road at the foot of Howell Mountain): Aromas of redcurrant and licorice. Sappy, slightly medicinal flavors of black cherry and licorice accented by fresh herbs. The building dusty tannins avoid going dry. "In a hot year this site gets very hot," noted winemaker Andy Erickson, "but 2010 and 2009 were cooler vintages."

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 209

The 2009 Dancing Hares is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot that spent 22 months in 90% new French oak. It exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, supple, sensual tannins and notes of incense, red and black currants, licorice, and hints of wet pebbles as well as baking spices. This attractive, medium to full-bodied red suggests a hypothetical blend of a top Bordeaux with the fruit intensity and purity of a high end Napa proprietary red. This beauty can be enjoyed now and over the next 15 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A gutsy effort that's very rich, deep and expansive, with tiers of ripe cherry, plum and blackberry that are robust and chewy, underscoring the extraction. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
