2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon starts with a beautiful aroma of blueberry and black plum, with wisps of light java. The supple tannins and intense fruit flavors of black cherry, and plums, combine with vanilla and baking spices for an excellent structure and beautiful finish. Notes of coffee add to the complexity of this wine.
Our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the heart of Napa Valley in the Oak Knoll AVA. Oak Knoll is known for mixed soil types that create tons of full flavored, intense fruit profiles.
Kevin uses modern techniques of cold soaking the grapes prior to fermentation and a slow, cool fermentation rate. This insures maximum extractions of color, not tannin, and the preservation of the fruit flavors. This wine is then barrel aged for 21 months in 50% new French oak.
The 2009 vintage in Napa Valley was nearly perfect and closely mirrored the famous 2002 vintage. There were no sustained spells of unseasonable weather from April through September. Grapes from 2009 benefited from the great weather and provided winemakers with the quality they needed to make amazing wines.
