Deep red in color, with concentrated ripe black fruit aromas intertwined with leather, chocolate and graphite in a perfect balance. Dense with soft tannins and a sweet aftertaste. Persistent chocolate and dried fruit flavors on the lingering finish.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2009 Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 5% Cabernet Franc, raised for 18 months in French oak barrels. It has a fine, Left Bank style nose with good definition and the right degree of austerity. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, masculine tannins that leads to a peppery, leafy middle and finish that shows good focus and reserve. Drink now-2015. (Dec 2012)
Wine Spectator 90 points - A dark red featuring dense kirsch and cassis notes, this is well-cut, with juicy acidity pushing along nuances of baking spice, grilled game and earth undertones. Drink now through 2017.—N.W. (Jan 30 2013)
