2009 Au Sommet Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1144549 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Very rich and opulent, in the Heidi Barrett style, this Cabernet is sweetly jammy but somewhat direct in blackberries, cherries and raspberries. The finish is extraordinarily long and spicy, an indication that it’s a wine for the cellar. Firm tannins and fine acidity confirm its ageability. Hold this flashy, decadent wine until 2016 and then try it again. Inner quote mark (7/2012)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Au Sommet is a bit lighter on its feet than the 2008. Sweet, silky tannins frame the fruit. Unlike the 2008, the 2009 is not particularly wild or exotic. Instead, it is a wine that stands out for its textural finesse and understated personality. This mid-weight, gracious Cabernet Sauvignon should be cellared for another year or two and enjoyed over the following decade. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (from vines at an altitude of 2,100 feet): Good dark red. Musky aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and spicy oak. Juicy, sweet and chocolatey but not over the top. Boasts very good density and texture, with lively, primary flavors of blackberry and violet. This rich, well-balanced wine opens up nicely in the mouth, showing the depth of fruit to support its ripe, oak-driven tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A savory mix of loamy earth, dried herb, dried berry, sage and tobacco leaf flavors, this is full-bodied and firming, ending with a return to the savory berry flavors. Best from 2013 through 2023. (Web-2012) (JL) Inner quote mark
