***Cellar Selection*** Very opulent and jammy in blackberry, cherry and mocha flavors, this has a strong oak presence in the form of caramelized wood. It defines Napa richness, but it is too tannic and immature to properly enjoy now. Give it a snooze for 6-8 years.
Supple and graceful up front, with elegant black cherry, red candy, red and black licorice, and subtle earth shades that firm nicely on the finish. Drink now through 2023. (JL)
(bottled with a glass stopper): Bright medium ruby. Cassis, black cherry and menthol on the nose, along with a strong component of chocolatey oak. Sweet, lush and brooding, showing darker fruits than the regular 2009 cabernet, but with sound acidity and notes of licorice, menthol and herbs giving lift to the middle palate. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins that reach the incisors and a slight green edge.
