I liked the 2007, the 2008 never made it to the LCBO, so when I saw the '09, I was eager to re visit an old friend.

This is a great example of how different harvest years come into play. This wine is just not drinkable. The "nail polish" comment from above says it all. Too tight, not balanced, too hot with alcohol and any berry flavours are well hidden.

In short no redeeming features whatsoever.

For the same price there are endless better choices from South America.
