This offering delivers the classic elements of ripe current and blackberries, along with perfumed layers of floral notes, hints of licorice and vanilla bean. We are most impressed with this wine's balance on the palate. It provides both a smooth and silky texture along with the weight, refined tannins, and a persistent presence that lingers beautifully. We hope you enjoy this wine both in its youth and with cellar age.
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is typical of the year in this part of Napa Valley, where the wines are rich, broad and voluminous. Less floral and refined today than the 2008, the 2009 is built on a serious core of deep, expressive fruit. Juicy dark raspberries, flowers, spices and mint are layered into the generous finish. The 2009 could use another year in bottle to shed some baby fat, but it is exceptionally beautiful and polished, even today. There is so much hidden potential here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
