Aromas of dark chocolate, currant and black tea are followed by expressions of black cherry and ripe blackberry. On the palate, the ultra dark fruit notes are met with flavors expressive of the hillsides where it grows - lavendar, sage, forrest floor and crushed rock minerality. The textire also speaks of mountain fruit boasting dense structure and rich tannins.
"Firm tannins provide the backbone in the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Mountain Estate Vineyard. Layered dark blue/purplish fruit, sweet herbs, tobacco, incense and tar come to life in a powerful, structured Cabernet Sauvignon from Fisher’s Sonoma County estate. The 2009 boasts implosive fruit, equally vibrant minerality and fabulous overall balance. I can’t wait to see how it ages.
