2009 @cabernet sauvignon reserve
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Valley
Where It's At
We have been featuring wines made by the beloved Robert Rex at Deerfield Ranch Winery for more than five years now, and we have grown to love both the extraordinary wines and the extraordinary talents and warmth of the entire Rex family. We are proud to introduce Robert’s new brand @wine today. Today’s 2009 @Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve drinks just like the higher-priced offerings we’ve seen under the Deerfield Ranch winery label.
A rich, right, mouth feeling wine, today’s reserve Cabernet Sauvignon really knocked our socks off. Certainly, we have come to expect great things from the winemaker of Deerfield Ranch, and when we learned that the new brand @wine included a reserve-tier wine, we jumped at the chance to review it. Boy are we glad that we did! Bold, well structured and delicious, this young wine is drinking beautifully, right now. It is also clear that this wine will continue to progress for at least another decade. With proper care, this one will only continue to improve, delivering even more elegance then it does today.
Enjoy this ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon, at a fraction of the price. Just act quickly, dear operative, as this fantastic Cyber Monday opportunity will be over when the wine sells out.
Beautiful maroon hues with the translucent quality that makes the wine seem to shimmered in the glass. Color is evenly concentrated from the core of the wine to the edge of the glass. After giving the wine a good swirl it settles quickly leaving behind a unique twin level of tears that retain the color of the wine as it moves slowly down the glass wall.
Rich and right, with bold blackberry, smoked cherry candy, settle leather, dark mocha, wild strawberry and sweet spice out in front. Additional aromas are revealed after you allow it to breathe. Sweetwood, earthy loam, black pepper and graphite follow on.
Sweet, rich and delicious, with sweet black cherry, smoky sweet black plum, blackberry, dried blueberry, subtle pine, mint and just a hint of black pepper all contributing to the intriguing flavors of this wine.
Oaks along with fresh fruits that gradually yield to dry fruits, spice and lush earthen elements. As plush tannins drive the pallet and pucker the lips a lovely graphite minerality dances on the tongue with black pepper, long after fruits fade.
