Stag's Hollow Winery 2009 Cachet No. 02 - 92pts
Cost: $49.99 (original release price)
Production: 40 cases
Date Tasted: September 13th, 2013
Tasting Notes: Feels a little like infanticide to open this beautiful Grenache-Syrah blend (with small amounts of Viognier and Marsanne) this early in its development, though, with proper decanting the gorgeous, feminine nose of crushed violets, potpourri, dried cranberry, spiced oak and sweet red fruit comes to life. The complex and intense palate needs more time in the bottle for the rich red fruit, savoury characters, bright berry acidity and fine tannin elements will meld together further and evolve as expected. Drink 2015-2019.
