Le coup de foudre

We fell in love with today’s wine, the instant we first inhaled it!

Lush, plush, soft and sexy, today’s 2009 Swanson Vineyards Instant Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is a true delight for the senses. With every swirl, this special 25th anniversary cuvee seems to grow in the glass, gaining dimension and complexity. Flavors and aromas keep coming alive and with each sip, the wine gets better and better.

It is a real thrill for us to bring you this very distinctive, limited-release wine and we really hope that you treat yourself to a few bottles.

While this young 2009 is drinking beautifully, we have the grandest expectations for it in the future. We’ll be enjoying a few bottles now, but you can be sure that we’ll be socking a case away to enjoy over the next decade - and beyond.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deepest ruby red with a slickly darker core. Color remains evenly concentrated from core to edge. Spin the wine, and marvel as wave after wave of skinny legs fall swiftly down the glass.

Smell:

Aromatic and very inviting. Sweet cherry, blackberry and cassis are the lush forerunners for cocoa powder, supple leather, espresso bean, subtle tobacco, toasty oak and subtle anise.

Taste:

A delicious rush of balanced sweet and subtle savory flavors spread across the palate. In the lead, black cherry, ripe blackberry, smoky blueberry and cassis. These are followed, closely, by dried violets, dried fall leaves, earthy bramble, subtle leather, clove spice, anise and dried marionberry.

Finish:

Ultra long and very balanced, with fruit and earthy notes slowly fading in even proportion. Bright acids provide great support in sustaining flavors.
