94 points " 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard is bigger, richer and deeper than the 2008 tasted alongside it. In this vintage (and 2010) the picks were smaller, and therefore many of the fermentations were done in smaller French oak barrels, which has given the wine much of its shape. Ripe dark cherries, menthol and spices wrap around the finish. The tannins are a bit firm, but the wine was also bottled just one month before I tasted it. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029. " (12/2011) " Best 2014-2029

94 points "4 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Very ripe but fresh aromas of currant, gingerbread and loam. Lush, sweet and vibrant, with powerful black raspberry fruit complicated by sexy earth tones and spices. Boasts terrific verve for such a rich wine. Finishes with ripe tannins and a large structure, but this is remarkably balanced already. " (05/2012)"
