International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 165

Good full red. Superripe aromas of redcurrant, plums, licorice, flint and smoke. Dense, sweet and powerful; concentrated but tightly wound today, conveying an impression of thickness and finishing with a chewy, saline quality and firm tannic spine. I wanted a bit more primary fruit and yet this wine has plenty of inner-mouth energy.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 204

Representing yet another of his Cabernet ' Syrah co-ferments (here 30% of the latter) and sourced from Old Stones Vineyard and Christophe Baron's Cailloux Vineyard respectively (both mentioned in small print on the label), Smith's 2009 The Creator is smokily-scented with peat and black tea, soy, licorice, juniper berry and cassis. A bitter edge from huckleberry is added to the pungent impression that the aforementioned features lend this wine's dense, finely-tannic, rather stiff palate. A faintly dry spot as well as the wine's bitter elements take the edge off of its finish. Broad and a bit brawny, I doubt this will ever measure up to the very best of its vintage, impressive though it is. I won't try to handicap it at first acquaintance other that to say that it was certainly created with the notion of long-aging but will have to further convince me.

Wine Spectator Author: Harvey Steiman

Firm, focused and dripping with personality, this is full of wet slate, rare meat and sourdough toast flavors, along with dense, dark blueberry and plum fruit, all competing for attention against polished tannins that let the finish roll on and on. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
