Flaherty Wines

Flaherty 2009

Flaherty 2009 classy blend of Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Tempranillo out of Chile's Aconcagua Valley

Tasting Notes

July 2012
This is truly a garageiste wine, only around 470 cases were produced in the basement of owner/winemaker Ed Flaherty's home. Sourced from three separate vineyards out of Chile's Aconcagua Valley this red blend has beautiful definition. The nose has a nice spice lift to the cherry and red currant fruit tones. The texture is plush and creamy, packed with, broad, sweet fruit, in the darker red perspective, that's blessed with just the right amount of tannins which frame the fruit beautifully. Round and supple this is quite impressive and should really drink nicely over the next couple of years.

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May 2012
(made from a blend of syrah, cabernet sauvignon and tempranillo): Full ruby. Spice-accented aromas of dried cherry, anise and violet, with subtle tobacco and cracked pepper notes adding complexity. Lush and creamy on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering intense red fruit flavors that give way to deeper cassis on the back half. Fine-grained tannins add gentle grip and shape to the very long, sweet, penetrating finish. Definitely give this wine a bit more age.
