2009 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Originating from a hillside vineyard at the southeastern end of Napa Valley the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a quintessential Napa Cab. The slightly cooler climate coupled with a mix of well-drained river rock and mineral-rich volcanic ash soil result in berries with deeply structured and robust tannins and a well developed fruit profile.
Saturated purple color, followed by a fragrant nose of blueberries and cassis. In the mouth, subtle doses of plum, currant and toasted oak emerge. This multi-layered wine possesses well structured tannins, a voluptuous texture, and superb concentration and purity. It is an opulently styled Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next decade.Specials: Buy 3 bottles and receive free shipping Buy 6 bottles and receive free shipping plus a 10% discount Buy a case and receive free shipping plus a 15% discount
