2009 Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Valley
It’s not often we use words like sexy and seductive to describe wines, but when it comes to Deerfield, anything less just feels a bit wanting. Today’s 2009 Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous wine, and one we couldn’t wait to bring to you.
Agent Red scored an exclusive offering of today’s standout Sonoma Cab, so today is your chance to grab Deerfield’s newest release before anyone else. Please don’t wait! We have a feeling that there are quite a few Operatives - not to mention the Agents here at Wine Spies HQ - who are scrambling to grab every last bottle they can.
An inky, nearly perfectly opaque deep scarlet through and through, with the faintest touch of lightness at the edge.
A lovely nose on this wine, with blackberry, red and black currants, and black cherry joining hints of espresso bean, deep dark chocolate, dried herbs, black peppercorn, and dried fallen leaves.
Luxurious full flavors that are everything you hope for in a Cabernet. Deep dark fruit notes of sweet black cherry and blackberry compote mingle with dried rose petal, dusty dark chocolate, black licorice, espresso bean, and a touch of saddle leather.
A gorgeous and seductive wine that simply begs to be sipped. The wine is incredibly soft on entry, with juicy fruit flavors that slowly fade to a slightly drying hint of earth at the very end.
We recommend a roasted duck breast, drizzled with a plum reduction. But, truthfully, this wine is delicious enough to pair with any number of meals.
