    Winemaker's Notes:

    With its deep, dark color and seductive, spicy aromas, the 2009 Faithful Hound is a fine example of the blended claret style of wine. Aromas of bold ripe blackberries, cinnamon spice and light touches of peppermint characterize the nose. The entry is full and round, building to a bold core which tapers off to a subtle, lengthy finish. Savory flavours of graphite, forest floor and cured ham are well balanced by a lively red berry freshness.

    Pair with game birds, lamb, steak, or cream-based pasta.

    Blend: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec

    Critical Acclaim:

    Good medium ruby-red. Blackberry, black raspberry, coffee, mocha, woodsmoke and peppery herbs on the nose. Rich, silky and fine-grained in a distinctly Old World way, offering complex, subtle notes of berries, tobacco leaf, fresh herbs, woodsmoke and soil in a very harmonious package. Finishes savory and long, with suave tannins and lingering spice and tobacco leaf notes. This held up very well in the recorked bottle.
