Natalie's Score: 92/100

Savoury and meaty with layers of depth and complexity. Black fruit, smoke and tar with a long finish. Decant 2-3 hours but try to give it some cellar time first.

An exceptionally good wine, right up there with the fantastic 2007 Cask. Classic Rutherford Cabernet, dry, softly tannic and delicious, with herb-infused blackberry and cherry fruit. Definitively not in the modern style of fat over ripeness, but balanced and elegant. Shows all the hallmarks of an ageable wine, but you can drink it now. It gets better and better as it breathes in the glass. Score: 94 Source: Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast
