The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is a gorgeous, rich wine layered with mint, tobacco, spices, cedar and licorice. It shows gorgeous textural depth and tons of aromatic nuances. This is a fabulous wine loaded with class and personality. It isn't the biggest wine here, but it is exceptionally polished. Wow!

Beautifully crafted, deliciously rich and polished, harmonious and layered, offering rich red and dark berry, with light cedar, mineral and spice. Ends with firm, fine-grained tannins.

Day 1: Napa fruit purity and freshness prevail here! A dark red core with vibrant red edges. Aromas of cherry, black raspberry, chocolate, and graphite . The palate is young but generous with fine medium toned tannins and plenty of acidity for freshness. Great length as the finish carries the fruit and dusty mocha to the end.
Day 3: Rock solid day 3, the remaining half bottle was re-bottled and sealed in a half bottle. Same wine but with more complexity and breadth.

Smelled like a Pessac-Leognan. Earthy as all get out, with black fruit flavors and spice. Excellent concentration. Needs 5 years. A tremendous wine.
