Tasting Notes

2009 Cabernet Sauvignon

Gold Medal – 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, Gold Medal – 2013 Monterey Wine Competition, Gold Medal/Best of Class – 2013 Pacific Rim Wine Competition

Arguably the most important red wine grape in the world, a distinguished Cabernet Sauvignon is one of life’s great pleasures.  We choose our Cabernet sites carefully:  warm days with lots of sunshine, cool nights to preserve the balance of the fruit, well-drained soils, and gentle slopes.  These elements allow us to produce exceptional Cabs year in and year out.  Our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is intense and focused, with a rich, concentrated core of black currant and blackberry fruit, complemented by spicy notes of cedar and mint.  The balance of fruit, acidity and well-integrated tannins make this an ideal drink-now companion to fine cuisine, while aging will only enhance the layers and complexity.
