(15.3% alcohol): Saturated medium ruby. Complex aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, licorice, minerals and spicy oak, plus a hint of game. Pliant and layered on the palate, with an insidious penetrating quality to the seamless cassis, game, mineral and licorice flavors. A floral element gives lift to this primary but varietally expressive wine. Finishes long and suave, with fine tannins. Delicious now but capable of aging for a decade or more. A terrific vintage for this bottling.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is a rich, boisterous wine endowed with tremendous palate presence and depth. Juicy dark red berries, flowers and mint literally burst from the glass as the 2009 opens up with some time. Year after year, the One Point Five is one of the most consistent and fairly priced wines in the highflying landscape that is the Napa Valley. This is a flat out delicious bottle to drink now (with some decanting) and over the next handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Rustic, with a chewy edge to the loamy earth and cedar. The core currant and dark berry flavors are intense and concentrated, and this ends with chunky tannins. Fans of that rustic character will happily chew through this.8,500 cases made.

Medium to full bodied, lacking the depth of past vintages. Nice plums and currants. Smooth finish.

DEEP DARK RUBY RED WINE WITH AN INCREDIBLE NOSE OF BRIGHT RED FRUIT DELICIOUS WELL INTEGRATED TANNINS AND A LONG DELICIOUS FINISH LASTING 50 SECONDS OR MORE. A FABULOUS WINE FOR THE PRICE. WISH I HAD MORE. RECEIVED THIS AS A GIFT. REALLY UNEXPECTED.
