Neal Family Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

$45

A delicious new 2009 Cabernet from Neal Family Vineyards, one of our newest discoveries in top-tier Napa Cabernet. Cab fans don't miss this opportunity to try this beauty before it sells out. The Neal Family 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is strikingly deep and dark ruby in color. An intoxicating mixture of cherries, black cassis, sweet oak, violet and cigar box spice rises from the glass. Layers of ripe Bing cherries, raspberries and semi-sweet cocoa dominate the mid-palate giving this wine a nice backbone and plenty of structure. The fruit is present with firm tannin and a nice acidity provides a beautiful balance. Brown sugar and a creme brulee- induced finish that lingers for more than 30 seconds.  Will reward you handsomely after cellaring for some additional time or if decanted when young. Los Angeles Times: "...the Neal Family Napa Valley Cabernet is succulent, generous and completely on point, a rich wine possessing fine, pristine, tannins to give the wine grip and precision."

A sort of classical style of old Cali cabs... Big and dusty with enough oak to give some earthy, coffee-ish tannins. The fruit is dark and structured. Age worthy, and probably should be aged...

Particularly soft and supple considering its mostly mountain fruit. Was expecting more depth and aggressive tannins but it was very elegant and pretty.

Great on its own. Will be even better once those bad boys are done and ready.

Excellent example of Napa Cab. Dark purple center with short watery meniscus. Fresh cut oak plank, orange blossom, dark plumb, raisin, vanilla, tobacco and tar. Tannic plus which required 2 hours decanting. Med acidity and long finish.
