2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Viking Vineyard Reseve
Drawing from its mountain top terroir, Viking has a characteristic high toned fruit quality, from its initial aromatics of red and blue fruits, to its graphite minerality. This year’s Viking has a sense of sculptured elegance in its finely cut contours of crisp cherry-like fruit and balancing acidity with subtle hints of vanilla bean and sweet pipe tobacco. With patience and a bit of decanting the wine fills out, gaining a voluptuousness and generosity of flavors. Decanting is recommended for current drinking or hold up through 2020.
2009 Syrah Viking Vineyard Reserve
"The 2009 Syrah Reserve Viking Vineyard emerges from the glass with juicy dark cherries, plums, flowers, leather and savory herbs. It shows a level of nuance, depth and sheer vibrancy that is missing from some of the other wines in this lineup. Layers of fruit build to the rich, intense finish. This is a terrific showing from Adelaida. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019." Antonio Galloni. The Wine Advocate. Aug. 2012
