International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 162

Full ruby-red. Cassis, dark chocolate and violet on the lively nose. Seamless and lush in the style of the year, showing the roundness and finesse of the best Spottswoode vintages. Finishes with toothcoating sweet tannins and a complete absence of rough edges. This doesn't show the tannic mass of the more backward and powerful 2008 but it's suaver and has plenty of structure for a graceful evolution in bottle.

Wine Advocate Author: Antonio Galloni Issue: 204

Another super-impressive effort, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts stunning depth and sheer power. Black currants, pencil shavings, mocha, incense and melted road tar are all woven together gracefully in this powerful, opulent wine. The tannins remain firm, so another few years of cellaring is a must. There is serious density and sheer power to burn. Today the 2009 is a touch less vibrant than the 2010, but more overt and voluptuous. A brooding, muscular finish rounds things out beautifully. The 2009 is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Beautifully crafted and marked by a distinctively complex, subtle mix of dried herb, baking spices and floral scents, with a tight core of currant and blackberry. Finishes with a surge of flavors that build and expand.
