Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90?

(cabernet sauvignon blended with 8% petit verdot, 7% cabernet franc and 5% merlot): Full, deep ruby-red. Pure but subdued aromas of cassis, licorice, dark chocolate and herbs. Broad but a bit unrefined, and less sweet today than the To Kalon bottling. The dark berry flavors come across as a bit chunky and the dusty tannins a tad rough, but the finish is nontheless broad and long. I'd lay this down.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

The 2009 Era is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based red with 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot. It is a dark, powerful wine bursting with plums, espresso, mocha, sweet French oak and licorice, all of which come together in a powerful, virile style. Layers of black fruit build effortlessly towards the opulent, caressing finish. Despite the wine's richness, there is excellent underlying structure. This is a distinctly sweet style that lacks the finesse of the 2008 tasted alongside it.

Dense and powerful, but rough around the edges, offering intense dark berry, mocha and espresso, with firm, drying tannins tightening on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
