93 points "The 2009 Serenade Single Vineyard was sourced from a parcel planted in 1933, fermented with native yeasts, and aged in 100% new French oak for 18 months. A deeper opaque purple color than the Temis cuvee, it displays the same elegant personality but with a firmer structure. Elements of savory black fruits intermingled with floral notes and exotic spices lead to a layered, spicy palate that expands nicely in the glass...93" WA 12/11 "An ambitious red, featuring toasty oak and spice notes to frame the deep layers of cassis, blackberry coulis and fig paste flavors, which expand with hints of maduro tobacco and melted bittersweet chocolate on the long, focused finish...91" WS 11/11 "This is rich, dense and sultry smelling, with cola, vanilla, char, coconut and wild berry aromas. It feels strapping and pure, with deep flavors of chocolate and blackberry offset by oak-driven spice and cedar. Toasty and spicy, the finish possesses a fudge-like richness...93" WE 08/12 " Best 2013-2024
