    Critical Acclaim:

    A beautiful expression of the year, the 2009 Second Flight emerges from the glass with intense layers of fruit in a style that very much recalls Screaming Eagle. Today, the 2009 comes across as a bit more structured and tannic than previous efforts. Some of that may be the vintage, but I imagine the addition of 9% Cabernet Franc over Merlot to the blend is also a contributing factor. Either way, the 2009 is a striking Second Flight endowed with serious depth, purity and finesse. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers and sweet spices are some of the many nuances that are woven together in this appealing, totally delicious wine. The 2009 is 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    The 2009 Second Flight (59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc) is peppery and spicy with hints of tobacco leaf, red and black currants and mocha presented in an attractive, medium-bodied, lush, forward style. It is meant to be drunk early on, but it should easily keep 10-15 years because of its balance.
