Winemaker Notes - Our 2009 wine exhibits aromas of raspberry, boysenberry, mint and ripe cherries. Vanilla, nutmeg and allspice notes from oak aging bring balance and frame the ripe berry flavors. The wine drinks smooth and supple with rich fruit characteristics. Napa Valley shows through with rted rasberries and quintessential Oakville dark cherries. Supple elegant and richly flavored in dark berries with a subtle note of oak; a classic Napa Valley wine.
According to Robert Parker - Even better is the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. There are 100,000 cases of this 100% Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that is a tribute to Alex Cose’s winemaking skills as well as his ability to access good fruit. A dense plum/ruby color is followed by a wine with serious ripeness, supple, velvety tannins, abundant black currant, cedar and spice box notes, medium-bodied flavors and surprising texture and length. Drink this amazing offering over the next 4-5 years.
