Winemaker Notes

The 2009 Cariad blend is composed of 59% Cabernet, 22% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc all from Madrona Ranch and 9% Petit Verdot from Thorevilos vineyard. In order to make the best blend year after year, we work closely with our French consultant, Alain Raynaud, to give us his thoughtful insight. Slowly and meticulously we construct the blend together. The 2009 Cariad is loaded with earthy notes of mineral, talc and gravel. With air, the wine unfolds with dark black cherry notes, meaty aromas of grilled steak, and barbecue and curry spices. The texture is oily on entry with an old world structure and bright acidity. Super rich and definitely brooding, this wine has a lot of stamina. A long lingering finish lets the experience continue. I would recommend a minimum of 5 to 7 years of aging in the cellar before opening. This has everything it needs to age gracefully.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Proprietary Red Cariad is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 9% Petit Verdot. This full-bodied red reveals slightly more forest floor, menthol, bouquet garni, espresso roast, blackberry and black currant characteristics as well as more tannin than the Tychson Hill. It comes across like an elegant hybrid blend of a rich Bordeaux-styled wine from Napa Valley with a focused, structured, French sensitivity. It should age effortlessly for 20-25 years.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Very tight and sturdy, firm and muscular, offering extracted blackberry fruit, with notes of black licorice, spice and tar. Ends with chewy tannins and a pleasant edge of ripe fruit. Best from 2014 through 2028.
