@Delicious!

Today’s Deerfield Ranch Winery 2009 @Cabernet Sonoma County Reserve drinks like a $50+ Napa Cab, but at just $24, you won’t have to worry about dipping too far into your bank account for this one!

Today’s wine comes from Operative (and Agent!) favorite Deerfield Ranch. We have consistently been blown away by their wines, and today’s Cab is most certainly no different. Full of rich dark fruit, sweet terroir, and subtle dark spice, today’s wine had us eagerly reaching for more. A few members of our tasting panel were absolutely shocked that such a fantastic wine was available for just $24.

We can’t recommend today’s outstanding Cab any more highly. And, with this Cab at a stunning 40% off, I can think of quite a few Agents who can’t wait to take advantage of this deal!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Inky scarlet at the heart of the glass, with a very slight hint of lighter red at the edge of the glass.

Smell:

Rich and lush on the nose (reminiscent of higher priced Napa Cabs), with black cherry, roasted plum, and hints of dried Mission fig laid atop pipe tobacco, soft leather, sweet oak, creme brûlée, and fresh berry bramble.

Taste:

Great depth and concentration on the palate, with a stewed compote of sweet cherry, plum, and blackberry mingling with coffee bean, saddle leather, brown tobacco leaf, dark baking spices, and a touch of black peppercorn.

Finish:

Wonderfully luxurious and incredibly smooth on entry with flavors that beautifully coat the mouth. The mouthfeel is very reminiscent of higher priced Cabernets.

Pairing:

Grilled skirt steak fajitas served with plenty of fresh veggies, pico de gallo, and homemade guacamole.
