Wine Spectator | Rating: 90Combines ripe, supple layers of plum, black cherry and wild berry with subtle loamy earth and anise notes, before firming nicely on the finish.Author: James Laube
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92Medium ruby. Very pure, mineral-tinged aromas of blackberry, cassis and violet. Creamy on entry, then a bit narrower in the middle before opening nicely with aeration to show more sweetness and good depth. Elegant, intensely flavored cabernet with a rising finish featuring ripe tannins and a late note of dark chocolate.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2012
Wine Advocate | Rating: 89The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard comes across rich, dark and supple. Black fruit, mocha, spices and licorice are some of the nuances that take shape in the glass. This is a very pretty Chabot Vineyard. Sweet floral notes wrap around the finish.Author: Antonio Galloni
