2009 Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
350 Cases Produced
"A massive wine, decadent and splendid, and a worthy followup to the near-perfect 2008. Densely packed in fruit, it explodes in blackberries, cassis, dark chocolate, minerals and sweet, toasty new oak. That richness is lifted to by brilliance by the tannic structure, which is world class. So deliciously approachabel, it's drinkable now, but it should develop over the next 6-8 years."
