The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ranch bursts from the glass with masses of dark red fruit, tobacco, licorice and cassis. The wine shows marvelous depth and texture as the aromas and flavors build effortlessly to the dramatic, sweeping finish. This is a superb effort, and certainly one of the very finest Napa Valley wines available for the money. This is a big and hugely delicious wine. In 2009 the blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18.2% Cabernet Franc and 6.8% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. (AG)
Very dry, by modern standards, and while there's a noble core of blackberrry and currant flavors, there's also terrific minerality—as if the dirt had been set afire and liquified. The firm tannins make this Cabernet-based blend hard. With such great structure, it's a likely cellar candidate. Drink after 2015. *Editors' Choice*
Good bright red-ruby. Rather withdrawn but pure aromas of dark fruits and pepper. Spicy, high-pitched and youthfully medicinal, with classically dry flavors of dark fruits, pepper and tobacco. The major dusty tannins coat the teeth but the finish also displays a light touch. (ST)
