93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012

(combines fruit from Meteor Vineyard, another site in Coombsville and one in Oakville):  Aromas of plum, cherry and spices.  Suave, sweet and savory, with enticing, pliant flavors of red fruits, game and sage.  Finishes lush and sweet, with very smooth tannins and lingering notes of red berries and spicecake.  More open-knit than it appeared to be in barrel a year ago, but built to age.  Incidentally, Andy Erickson and his wife, viticulturalist Annie Favia, did not make their Magdalena bottling in 2009 or 2010 as David Abreu kept the cabernet franc fruit and the cabernet sauvignon was replanted.  The Magdalena will be back in vintage 2011.
