All of the very best attributes of the vintage and the Pelissero house style come through in the 2009 Long Now. A huge, rich wine, the Long Now bursts from the glass with dark fruit, mocha, grilled herbs and smoke. This voluptuous, striking wine is loaded with class through and through. Tar, licorice and smoke are layered into the deep, resonant finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.
Saturated bright ruby. Liqueur-like black raspberry and crushed blackberry. Fatter and sweeter than the 2008 but with a bit less lift and definition. Less noble but massive, with a distinctly thick texture and a strong licorice flavor. This bruiser is in a heavier style than the 2008 (it's close to 15% alcohol), but with its sexy richness it will probably be easier to sell.
