rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Chapel Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is a full bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with intense, ripe aromas of blackberry, black cherry, coconut and vanilla. Tannins are refined (decant for 15 to 30 min) and the finish is long, smooth and silky. Drink now or hold upright (screw cap) for 5 or so years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts - correctly priced – hence a recommended buy. Unfortunately the screw cap prevents me from adding this wine to my cellar. Tasted Feb/12.
Deep purple-crimson; a particularly well-made wine, even if some may find the oak level high; nicely ripened cassis and blackcurrant fruit is complexed by cedary oak, the tannins ripe and soft. Drink by 2024. Score: 94 Source: James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
