I loved this '09 Rockpile as much as I did the outstanding 2008. Sensationally rich yet impeccably balanced and not at all overweight. No overripe or raisiny or hot feeling, yet still possessed of liqueur-like flavor density. Great feeling of power and grip in the mouth, with nearly perfect tannic and acid structure. Seamless flow of ripe berry and dark currant fruit with spicy oak and vanilla in the background. Hits the sweet spot in almost every respect. - HK 2014-01-10
