91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Round and silky, with a lovely richness of chocolate, currant and plum character. Full and flavorful. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. Enticing, vibrant, surprisingly forthcoming aromas of cranberry and red cherry syrup. Shows more red fruits on the palate, with strawberry-rhubarb and cranberry cocktail flavors nicely complicated by a hint of citrus. Made in a very open-knit and soft style, but finishes a touch tart and tannic. Still, this should be a remarkably enjoyable, easy-drinking 2009. (ID) Inner quote mark (5/2010)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is stylish, with perfumy black tea and smoldering charcoal aromas followed by lightly mulled plum, fig and blackberry fruit. An echo of juniper shows on the mineral-edged finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

88-90 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2009 Lalande-Borie is a very good example of the vintage. The bouquet is deep and complex, as it offers up scents of black cherries, dark berries, cigarette ash, gravelly soil tones and a judicious framing of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with beautifully integrated tannins, fine focus and a long, classy finish. Impressive and quite classic in profile. Inner quote mark (3/2010)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Lalande Borie has a finely tuned bouquet with vivacious raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, infused with cedar, a touch of sandalwood and graphite. It opens nicely in the glass. The palate is animally on the entry with lovely savory fruit: chestnut and white pepper underlying the blackberry and balsamic notes. Structured, beefy and burly - this has a lot of charm. (NM) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

K&L Notes

*V 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The blackcurrant character is dominant. This wine is getting better and better. Tons of ripe red fruit flavors. This is a sleeper of the vintage in Clyde's mind. (Clyde Beffa Jr.)
