- Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Neal Martin: "The 2009 Sena has an exuberant bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry, menthol, crushed stone and graphite that is extremely well defined and more feminine than the 2008. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, taut tannins and superb focus. It has a focused, leafy, tobacco infused finish and great length. Excellent. Drink 2014-2020."
- VINOUS, Josh Raynolds: "Vivid ruby. High-pitched aromas of redcurrant and cherry, with spice and floral accents and a touch of vanilla. Zesty, focuse red fruit flavors gain heft and sweetness with air. Shows very good energy and purity on the long, spicy, nicely delineated finish. I'll bet that this finely tuned wine will reward a decade in the cellar."
- JANCIS ROBINSON: "54% Cabernet Sauvignon (picked third week of April), 21% Carmenère (picked first week of May), 16% Merlot (picked third week of March), 6% Petit Verdot (picked second week of April), 3% Cabernet Franc (picked third week of May). TA 5.94 g/l, pH 3.36, RS 2.94 g/l. Fruit from their Seña hillside vineyard, 41 km from the Pacific Ocean. The colluvial soils have different textures and stone content. At lower altitudes the stone content is lower (0?10%) and higher up, stone content ranges from 30?70%. Elevation of 290?500m. Low rainfall during the growing season and a warm, dry summer. Hand-picked and sorted by hand. Stainless-steel fermentation, three pumpovers per day. Total maceration time ranged from 20?40 days. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels.
Mid crimson. Real freshness on the nose as well as ripeness. Great drive and interest. All melded together into a most impressive whole. A slightly sudden finish but a huge step up compared with the rest of the first 21st-century decade vintages."
- 95 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "This is a powerful and structured red with currants, minerals and blackberries. Full and very silky plus has firm tannins and a chewy finish. Stoney. Needs another three years to soften. A beauty."
