The 2009 Proprietary Red The Lark, which was released in early 2013, comes from a single plot of rocky soils as well as the Eisele clone of Cabernet Sauvignon. More tannic, backward and brooding, this classic red needs more time in the bottle. Like many 2009s, it appears to have gone into a dormant state with the tannins dominating at present. However, the wine exhibits impressive purity, power, richness and a full-bodied mouthfeel. Cellar it for 3-4 years and drink it over the following 20-25 years.
