Winemaker's Notes

This is our smallest bottling of the Notorious blend since the quantity-challenged 2004 vintage when we also bottled just 6 barrels of wine under this particular label. This blend changes each vintage based on what we think are the most exotic barrels the cellar has to offer. In 2009 we were extremely limited in the barrels we did use our Notoroius technique on and they happened to all come from Balcombe Vineyard and there are only 4 of them so just about 90 cases will be produced which is our lowest production on this wine since 2002. What is truly recognizable even at this youthful age is the length of this wine. There is so much substance that is so well-balanced that it carries on and on. Buy it for its concentration, depth and exotic fruit but cellar and savor it for it length and complexity. This is a beautiful, beautiful wine.

This is, as always, our only wine that is made in 100% new Cadus barrels. As always this wine is a textural experience beyond any of our other wines. The richness of the wine, the lavish fruit, the spice and tannin from the barrels and the rigorous selection of the absolute best stuff results in a wine that is exotic, nuanced, layered, pleasurable and nearly hedonistic in its youth. This wine is especially age-worthy and will still be a vibrant, primary wine for many, many years in the cellar.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep, bright red. Explosively perfumed nose offers an array of dark berry and floral scents, along with notes of cinnamon, allspice and cola. Sappy, palate-staining black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors show very good clarity and pick up smokiness with air. The smooth, seamless finish shows outstanding persistence and resonating spice and floral character. This could be drunk now but I'd hold onto it for a while."
