2009 Cenyth Red Blend – Bordeaux

$73.52

93 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

This wine shows sweet tannin and a more open-knit personality, no doubt due to the 28% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc in the blend. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by notes of licorice, incense, forest floor, mulberries, black cherries, and black currants. Pierre Seillan believes that using four separate Sonoma County terroirs balances the wine beautifully, with high tannins from the mountain top vineyards and softer, silkier tannins from lower elevation sites. This full-bodied, attractive red is approachable but should age effortlessly for 15-20 years. (RP) (12/2013)

90 points Vinous

The 2009 Red Wine Sonoma County is dark, rich and enveloping. Black fruit, mocha, cloves, licorice, menthol, and new leather explode from the glass in a huge, mouth-filling red. This dark, gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon-based red is still incredibly primary. 2009 can be enjoyed today for its intense fruit, while more tertiary notes are just beginning to develop.
