2009 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District
Vibrant ruby colors. Flavors of cassis, plum and cherries mix with barrel notes and the well integrated but slightly sticky tannins hold it all together.
||Oct. 2 - 27, 2009
||24 Months Mixed French Oak
Color: Vibrant ruby, to a dark brick red.
Nose: Aromas of French vanilla, cream, and sweet oak mingle with those of Bing cherries, plums, sage, lavender, and violets.
Mouth: Bright acidity keeps this wine fresh and lively, as the mouth flavors are reminiscent of the aromas. Fruit driven flavors of cassis, plums, and cherries mix with the barrel notes as the well integrated, slightly tacky tannins hold the wine together.
