Steve Tanzer 90 points - The 2009 Facets (66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc) is a slightly lighter version of the 2008. Round and generous with loads of fruit, sweet black currants, cherries and spice box, it should drink nicely for 7-8 years.

2009 GEMSTONE FACETS
"Good deep medium ruby. Vibrant aromas of crystallized blackberry and rocky minerality. Tightly wound and backward, even youthfully tough today; this could support a longer than normal elevage. Finishes with substantial tannins. More site-typical than vintage-typical, this masculine, Pauillac-like wine will need patience once it's bottled." Steve Tanzer 90 points
