The 2009 vintage will be remembered as one of the best in the past decade. This Cabernet Sauvignon displays elegant aromas of cherry and red raspberry along with sage and dried flowers. On the palate, the wine is extremely well balanced with silky tannins that carefully weave together the earthy, dusty nuances of this Bordeaux-esque wine. With some airing, the wine flushes out providing even more dimension and depth. The finish lingers with fine tannins that are very elegant and structured.
