In the bag

Very Highly Recommended, today’s extraordinary 2009 Fritz Underground Winery Cabernet Sauvignon is a very impressive wine. A relatively youthful wine, today’s Cabernet drinks beautifully, delivering real depth, character and delicious fruit - all in a very elegant package that encourages prolonged exploration.

Loaded with juicy, dark fruit on the palate and on the nose, this deep wine delivers a truly balanced drinking experience. Our tasting panel simply could not put this wine down - until, alas, our glasses and sample bottles were drained.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep and intense, with iridescent maroon hues that deepen toward the core of the wine. At the edge of the glass, the color lightens, slightly. When swirled, slow, chubby legs hang for several seconds before descending slowly.

Smell:

An initial heady rush of raspberry, cherry and wild strawberry are quickly followed by sweet spice, sweet pipe tobacco, cassis and a hint of cocoa powder. Subtle dried leaves and a hint of fennel follow on, once the wine opens up.

Taste:

Bursting with juicy and darkly robust flavors, led by bold black cherry, blackberry, cassis, black plum and raspberry. These flavors are layered atop complex notes of sweet tobacco, earth and toasty oak.

Finish:

Ultra long with dark fruit that lingers on and on, eventually yielding to earthen notes, tobacco and softest spice.
