Winemaker Notes

The inky purple-colored 2009 FUTO is a formidable wine. Aromas lead off with a liqueur of blueberries and blackberries, creosote and florals. There is sensational richness but plenty of purity. Cabernet Sauvignon flavors dominate in the mouth with cassis, cedar and sweetened coffee. In its youth this wine seems to weave effortlessly between brooding and sensual. The brooding element will likely fade with 3-5 years of bottle age leaving a long-lived sensual beauty.

Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

V 97
Vinous
An explosive, captivating wine, the 2009 Futo bursts from the glass with an exotic mélange of incense, tobacco, wild flowers, licorice and plums. Full-bodied and racy, the 2009 covers every inch of the palate with stunning depth and purity. The tannins are firm and quite present, but there is so much fruit they are nearly buried. Readers will be tempted to drink the 2009 young, but my impression is that patience will be highly rewarded. This is yet another striking, totally compelling wine.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Pointedly rich and concentrated, this weaves intense blackberry, dark berry fruit and plum notes, with gutsy tannins that impart a chewy edge. Seems to be a more-restrained Futo, true to the milder vintage. Ends with a fresh cigar box taste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2014 through 2026.

Futo Winery Image
Futo Wines was established in 2002 by Tom and Kyle Futo of Wichita, Kansas. The Futo estate vineyards and winery are located in the western foothills of the Oakville appellation. There are five distinct estate vineyard blocks that span more than half a mile along the hillside. Cabernet Sauvignon is the predominating varietal, though several acres consist of Cabernet Franc, as well as a bit of Merlot and Petit Verdot. Since 2005, the best fruit from the estate is vinified, culminating in a wine they simply call "Futo."
