WA 93 WE 92 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Andolsen Vineyard bristles with considerable energy and vibrancy. Freshly cut flowers, spices, red berries and wild savory herbs are some of the nuances that emerge from the glass. A polished, beautifully delineated finish rounds out this gorgeous, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon. The Andolsen spent 18 months in French oak barrels, 100% new. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. Rated 90+
According to Wine Enthusiast - There’s nothing elegant about this Cabernet, but it does score high on the deliciousness scale. Shows Dry Creek’s rustic tannin structure, with a scoury mouthfeel, but the blackberry, blueberry and currant flavors, which are accented with smoky oak, are incredible. Drink it over the next few years, and watch it change as it breathes in the glass.
