Wine SpectatorThis isn't shy about its toast, with espresso and licorice snap notes leading the way, but there's vibrant acidity driving the sweet plum and fig fruit along, with a good mineral twinge on the finish. Drink now. 8,720 cases made.

Wine AdvocateSoleil, from the backwater satellite appellation of Puisseguin St. Emilion, has turned out a soft, round, consumer-friendly 2009 with lots of strawberry and black cherry fruit as well as hints of underbrush and cedar. It is a sexy, full-throttle, silky smooth wine to drink over the next 3-4 years. The final blend was 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the consultant here is Stefan von Neipperg.
