2009 Veraison Cabernet Sauvignon
Inky black in color, with aromatic complexity and fantastic varietal character. Layers of ripe blackberry, toasted French oak, vanilla, black tea, caramel, plum, cedar and coriander spice lift from the glass. The palate is flush, round, and full of flavors consisting of ripe cassis, chocolate covered almond, black cherry, soy sauce, tootsie roll, plums and well integrated caramelized oak. The persistent finish is rich and lengthy with a supple, sexy elegance. This Cabernet begs for a medium rare steak pairing! Drink now through 2026.
