Admittedly I have not been a fan of this wine, since it has been on the hyper fruity side, with a sugary finish, at least on my palate. I just tried a bottle of the 2009 Cab, and I must say that while it is certainly fruity and somewhat flamboyant (like a Shirah wine), it was not overly sweet as I've come to expect. An interesting dose of Raccah-ian "blue fruit" as well as some earthy goodness, with great texture and tannins. Also comes with a very generous 15% alcohol which caught me off guard. Anyway, a nice surprise for me, and I'm sure others will enjoy as well. I can't wait for the El Rom from '09 to come out after having tasted this one. From what I have heard, there was no '09 Katzrin, but I hope to be corrected.
