    Bottled in July of last year and comprising a roughly 60-40 Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot blend (Petit Verdot didn't make the cut this year due to the late frost), Figgins' 2009 Estate Red is stunningly scented with perfumed essence of iris and violet as well as ripe dark berries and high-toned, resinous green herbs and geranium. The effect is like Merlot contributing Chartreuse liqueur! (Is this a sweet spot to plant that grape or what?) The palate combination of seamless high ripeness and satiny polish with levity, billowing inner-mouth florality and sheer energy is utterly uncanny, and the finish is so juicy you'll need a napkin. If you've visited the site, it's hard not to imagine its airy openness reflected here in liquid form. And this is a libation you're likely to desire following for at least the next dozen years. (And perhaps its tannins will become more evident in the mid term.)

    (65% cabernet sauvignon and 35% merlot): Good deep red-ruby. Aromas of dark berries, cocoa powder and licorice. Dense, silky and rich, with a lovely creamy sweetness to the slightly high-toned black raspberry fruit. A compellingly sweet blend with suave, fully ripe tannins and outstanding black raspberry persistence.

    Fresh and vibrant, juicy with blackberry, currant and rose petal flavors on a lively, focused frame. This has density without extra weight, finishing with refined tannins, lingering enticingly. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot.

    Sweet and fruity after 60 min decant. Then growing darker and drier over the next 2 hours with raspberry, chocolate and cedar on the palate. Well integrated tannins. Not profound but very enjoyable.
