2009 Cabernet Sauvignon

Starr Ranch / 16.5%


Surprisingly fruity for a wine that is over 10 years old.  Besides being unusual due to it’s age, this Cabernet is unusual in that it is slightly ‘Amarone’ style.  This is a technique whereby the grapes are dried out slightly before fermentation, resulting in a multi-layered, concentrated treat.  Figs, dates and a hint of leather represent the drying process to the nose, and smooth milk chocolate cherries and a hint of port fill your mouth with concentrated flavor.  Smooth tannins indicate the age of this California Cabernet that is still maintaining good acid.
