The 2009 Cumberland Reserve is a blend of some of Oregon's greatest vineyard sites & appellations. This wine showcases the ripe, lush, "drinkme- now" character of this attractive vintage. Starting with milk chocolate, cherry & oak spice aromas, this wine evolves slowly in the glass, eventually showing grilled meat & roasted herb undertones making this wine very complex in the nose. Suave & silky in the mouth, with a generous ripe & sweet red and black fruit profile. It showcases cherry & raspberry fruit with a balanced control to this wine's sheer opulence. This wine will be great upon release with barbecue, meat dishes & cheese plates as well as rich pasta dishes & game. Drink now-2016.
