Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard gives up bold blackcurrant cordial, blackberry compote and raspberry pie scents with hints of chocolate-covered cherries, roses and lilacs plus hints of charcuterie and yeast extract. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is wonderfully elegant, with wonderful vivacity and perfume and a satiny texture with a very long finish.
Pure and understated, with a charming mix of elegant ripe black cherry and plum, subtle fresh earth, tobacco and cedar, ending with fleshy, fine-grained tannins.
Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Medicinal dark cherry, licorice, menthol, dark chocolate and spicy oak on the nose, plus a whiff of dried fruits. Superrich, deep wine with terrific concentration and clarity to its dark cherry and dark berry flavors. Really shocking energy here. Finishes bright and very long, with sexy cedary lift.
