The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is made mostly from purchased fruit. It is a big wine, with notable intensity and tannin. Dark red cherries, plums, mint, flowers and minerals wrap around the intense finish, leaving attractive traces of smoke, iron and tar. The 2009 is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. Aaron Pott is the winemaker.
Black current, tobacco, cedar, cocoa, rich attack soft dense core of smoked
meats black cherry with a long black cherry, cola and anis finish.
Farmer: David Abreu
Highlights great Rutherford Bench land sites balanced with a touch of dense mountain fruit.
