Pure and rich, featuring vivid dark berry, mocha, dried herb, cedar, black licorice and subtle mint notes. Firms nicely, offering a deep and supple texture, with a long, lingering finish. (JL)
Deep red with ruby highlights. Very dark aromas of cassis, licorice, licorice and violet complicated by a saline nuance and notes of herbs and tobacco leaf. Higher-pitched and less evolved than the Napa Cabernet, showing less early sex appeal and pliancy. But this fresh, firm wine has the concentration and structure to reward several years of cellaring. Jeff Ames, who is also winemaker for Kenward Family Wines, has taken his own Cabernets to a higher level with these 2009s. (ST)
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Panek Vineyard comes from rocky alluvial soils just north of St. Helena. It is a richer, fuller Cabernet displaying a brooding inky/purple color, abundant acidity, moderate tannin and a firm, Bordeaux-like structure. Impressively pure, rich and medium to full-bodied, it will benefit from more time in the bottle, and should keep for 12-15 years. (RP)
