The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon sees 19 months in mainly French oak of which 70% is new. It has an attractive nose of mulberry, blackberry leaf and a touch of warm gravel that is well defined and more understated than I expected. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity and a very elegant finish of raspberry and wild strawberry fruit. This is a very well crafted Cabernet that shows more harmony and complexity than the entry-level range. Drink now-2018.”,,,

Wine maker notes
Visually stunning with a deep garnet-ruby hue, this wine possesses an unprecedented elegance of fruit expression, lively acidity, tannin structure and oak integration. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and cassis are supported by subtle hints of baking spice and vanilla from oak aging. The mouthfeel is soft, silky and robing with a seemingly neverending finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2025. Decant prior to serving to further accentuate the aromas and flavors.
The incredible balance of acidity, varietal fruit character, silky tannin structure and restrained alcohol makes this vintage unparalleled in its versatility on the dinner table. It carries the depth and body to hold up to a marbled rib-eye and the finesse and elegance to gracefully accompany the leaner filet mignon. Grilled, braised or roasted, lamb, venison, pork, chicken and duck also make for perfect pairing material—the possibilities are only limited by the imagination.
Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
