2009 Etude Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon-California-Napa Valley

This Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is dense and round, opening with generous aromas of dark berry and cherry leading to layers of black licorice and graphite notes on the nose--true umami in complexity. The palate shows a depth and richness of fruit flavors ranging from blackberry, boysenberry and cassis. The concentrated fruit is wrapped in powdery tannins creating an ideally balanced wine with vibrancy that makes it a wine worthy of aging.

Etude's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley bursts from the glass with juicy dark berries, grilled herbs, menthol, tar, tobacco and licorice. Firm tannins provide the backbone as this powerful, muscular Cabernet opens up in the glass. Raspberry jam, flowers and spices add lift on the finish. Slightly wild notes detract a touch from the wine's overall balance. Otherwise, this is a fine effort. The 2009 needs a few years to settle down, after which it should drink beautifully for another decade. The blend is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2017 - 2029.

A firm and sturdy effort, at times rustic, with crushed rock and loamy earth woven with dried currant and dark berry. Intense and persistent, this is chunky now, built for cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2024.
