Wine Advocate lauds 2009 ANVIL Red "a knockout blend"

"...a classy effort...Full-bodied, polished & supple..."

Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate, June 2013



93+ Points

"Aged 33 months in 64% new French oak & a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot & 20% Petit Verdot that’s from Pepper Bridge, Dionysus & Boushey Vineyards, the 2009 ANVIL is a classy effort that has herb-laced black fruits, tobacco, lead pencil & chocolate-like aromas all emerging from the glass. Full-bodied, polished & supple, with a seamless texture that carries integrated acidity & ripe tannin, it’s a knockout [2009] blend that will easily drink well for over a decade. Drink now-2025+.

Meaning “blacksmith” in French, Forgeron is run by the talented Marie-Eve Gilla, who is originally from Paris, France & earned her Master’s in Oenology & Viticulture in Dijon before working in Burgundy. The wines are outstanding across the board & show great textures, integrated acidity & overall very drinkable profiles."
