2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from two vineyards; Tourmaline Vineyard in Coombsville AVA and McFadden-Simboli Vineyards in Napa AVA. The wine has layers of dark fruit, mouth-watering acid and long rich finish. Malbec was added to give the wine it’s lush and elegant mouth feel and wonderful layers of rich cherry and plum fruit. Finally we added a dash of Merlot to complement the wine profile.
PATEL 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable in its youth with a few hours of decanting, cellaring for a few years is recommended and can be enjoyed for two or more decades. The wine is well balanced, has a beautiful aroma, complex and layers of fruit dark. The oak is intergraded in the nose and palate with a silky smooth long finish. Our Cabernet Sauvignon can be enjoyed with a variety of food, or by itself.
"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon shows terrific depth and finesse from start to finish. Sweet black cherries licorice and spices are woven together gracefully in this soft textured wine. There is more than enough grip and sheer intensity to make me think the wine will drink well for a number of years."
Anticipated maturity 2016 to 2029.
