Joseph Phelps Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

$69.95

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a big, rich wine bursting with dark fruit. This is a fairly immediate style... Smoke, tobacco and licorice develop in the glass, adding complexity and nuance. The powerful, fruit-driven finish is totally rewarding... Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Very good, but will be even better in a couple years.

Deep and dark ruby red. Dark spices on the nose with some cocoa, dark fruits and earthiness. Undertones of dark floral notes, and a touch of leather. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and acidity. Dark red berries on the palate with some dustiness, dark cocoa, and black cherries. Medium bodied with a long finish. Drink till 2020.

Well structured and ready to drink. However if you waited for 3-5 more it wouldn't hurt the wine. Loads of dark fruit, mocha and ample oak. The tannins are pronounced. This is a full bodied wine and is wonderfully balanced.

Haven't had this vintage in a while. It's aging gracefully and will be even better in 5 years. #josephphelps biased review

Very well balanced single varietal. Smooth balance between fruit, tannins, acid. Surprisingly, lots of raspberries and fewer cherries. Warm oak, dusty, warm gravel. I liked this wine- smooth and not overpowering like many non-blended cabs.

Lovely. But should have enjoyed this just a few years earlier. But velvety and beautiful.
