Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (May 12, 2012) Review of 2009 Prince of Hearts, Paradise Hills Vineyard

Prince of Hearts Red Wine New

Review by Stephen Tanzer

Rating: (92)

(70.6% cabernet sauvignon, 24.9% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 1.5% petit verdot): Knockout perfume of black fruits, violet and cedar. Broad, lush and rather open-knit, with lovely fullness to the expressive flavors of currant, cherry, plum, spices and flowers. Very suave, concentrated and fine-grained for a “second wine”, finishing with even, building tannins and subtle suggestions of currant, graphite and wild herbs.
