2009 Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

Fragrant boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, cassis and Mission fig aromas comprise the fresh, fruitful nose of our 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The first sip of the wine reveals a big, boldly structured Cabernet with deeply concentrated black fruit flavors and intriguing dusty, loamy and mineral-y tones that add wonderful dimension and complexity.

    (From 2000 Vintage) 20% Merlot; 2% Cabernet Franc. As often seems the case for the Cabs of 2000, the aromas of this wine are nicely fruited, fairly deep and enriched with plenty of sweet oak spice. Once in the mouth, however, the wine proves to be ripe yet slightly hollow and lower in fruit than it is in oak. A little lean at the finish and never so rich as advertised, this is a pleasant but uncompelling wine whose reach exceeds its grasp.

    (From 1997 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Powerful, smoky, coffee aromas. Opulent, ripe, spicy rich fruit. Amazing intensity with lovely complexity and great length. Delicious.
