Aromas of cassis, truffles, black fruits, black pepper, and chocolate mingle with black currant and blackberry flavors. This is a well-structured wine with firm tannins and pleasing acidity.
Wine Spectator 91 points - The 2009 Centauri Red Blend is composed of 45% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot, with the balance Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 12 months in French oak. In the glass it is full-bodied, dense, layered, and long. Relatively forward, it can be approached now but will drink well for a decade. It is an outstanding value.

Wine Advocate 91 points - An ambitious red, with dark, smoldering cocoa and espresso notes coating the core of dark plum, currant and fig fruit. But this is polished and integrated, with alluring tobacco and loam notes filling in on the finish. Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignane. Drink now through 2013. 5,000 cases imported. –JM

Technical notes
(45% Cabernet Franc/25% Merlot/20% Cabernet Sauvignon/10% Carignan). Old vine fruit (the Cabernet Franc was planted in 1890) was steel fermented for 12-18 days, after which the wine was aged 12 months in new and neutral French oak and bottled unfined and unflitered.
