2009 Chateau Kirwan

2009 Chateau Kirwan

James Suckling 94 pts: "This is a wine that seduces you, with its crushed blackberries and hints of dark chocolate that follow through to a full body and ultra-fine tannins with a tangy, fresh finish. Solid as a rock. Best ever from here. Try in 2019. "


Wine Enthusiast 93 pts:  "While it has weight and richness, this is also seriously structured, a wine packed with dry tannins. The potential is all there—the sweet fruit of the vintage along with a solid texture and final acidity."

Winemaker's Notes: "The nose delivers intense notes of ripe fruit, supplemented by fine notes of spices. In the mouth, it is impressive, mellow and smooth, with signs of great maturity. It has a sturdy tannic structure, which will soften with age. The freshness and the tannic structure give more length to the fleshy frame. This wine is certainly young and has considerable aging potential."
