2009 Wine Advocate - 91 points - The Fidelitas red simply labeled 2009 Red Mountain originates in the Corliss Family’s eponymous nearby vineyard plus Ciel du Cheval, comprising Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 22% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc. Candied cherry, vanilla, red licorice and caramel definitely make for a confectionary experience, though bitter suggestions of cherry stone and dried herbs offer welcome counterpoint. While lacking the textural polish or lavish complexity of the corresponding Boushey, this will, nonetheless, have its partisans. Its evident tannins are reasonably fine-grained and its finish undeniably insistent. I suspect it will be worth following for at least 6-8 years. - David Schildknecht
