"Winemakers notes: The 2009 Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon benefits from a variety of soils and microclimates. The largest fraction comes from two vineyards located between St. Helena and Calistoga, which produced wonderfully perfumed, ripe wines with plenty of classic jammy blackberry fruit. From the gentle, rolling terrain of the Coombsville area, we added a more elegant but deep colored lot, which brought additional spicy aromatics and lush mouth feel to the blend. Added density came from a hearty, large-scale wine from the hills east of Rutherford, and an equally hearty fraction from a 2500-foot elevation vineyard in the Mayacamas Mountains, which which contributed an attractive mocha spice character. Dense ruby/garnet in color, this wine displays classic Cabernet aromatics: cassis and black cherry fruit, espresso, cedar, graphite, and a touch of leather. Oak-aging adds attractive spice cake suggestions. Expansive on the palate, but with enough poise and fleshy character to easily carry its rich tannins, the wine's flavors cover a spectrum of fruits, from black cherry to plum and fig."
