The 2009 Cabernet has truly become a sophisticated and refined wine. High-toned aromas of red currant, blackberry and baking spice lead to a palate that has completely integrated and resolved tannins. The silky texture offers focused layers of red and black fruit, cocoa, sandalwood and freshly cut cigar. This wine is right in the middle of it’s drinking window and will continue to cellar well for another 4-5 years. Enjoy!
