2009 Jericho Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon Calistoga
A classic Jericho Canyon Cabernet with our trademark dark fruit, black cherry, black current, and espresso flavors. The weather in 2009 also brought hints of mandarin zest and rich toffee to the nose while the palate is reminiscent of a deep velvety German chocolate cake. With perfectly balanced acidity, this is a wine that can age for 10-15-20 years but is plush and approachable for immediate heavenly intoxication. Perfect for sharing if you can.
"The real deal. Super-ripe but with impressive underlying acidity and structure, the wine has notes of charcoal, roasted herbs, tapenade, black currant, licorice, and camphor. It is deep, full-bodied, rich, with good acidity and sweet tannin. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. This source for Cabernet Sauvignon was made famous by well-known wine consultant and winemaker David Ramey when he was sourcing fruit from this site. They now estate-bottle their own wines, and this is a cuvee of around 400 cases made from 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc." – 93 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
