2009 Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon •Los Chamizal Vineyards
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Valley
Operative favorite Dionysus Winery makes a celebrated return today with their delicious 2009 Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Today’s wine is sourced from the highly sought after Los Chamizal Vineyard, long regarded as one of the premier vineyards in all of Sonoma County. The quality of the fruit shines through the glass, with lush and layered tones that only come from the best grapes. While today’s wine drinks beautifully now, the concentrated fruit notes are a sure sign that this wine will cellar exceptionally well.
This Cab is over 44% off, and we can’t recommend it highly enough. Be sure to buy enough to drink now and cellar for years to come.
Deep, foreboding garnet at the center of the glass, with only a hint of a hazy red ring around the edge.
Very fruit forward on the nose, with blackberry and sweet plum balanced against molasses, sweet tilled earth, dark baking spices, and a hint of spicy black peppercorn.
The palate is very reminiscent of the nose, with added touches of sweet tobacco leaf, caramel dipped green apple, fresh berry bramble, and roasted espresso beans.
Beautifully lush and concentrated, with bold fruit notes that are a sure sign that this wine will age very well.
Slowly braised short ribs, served with roasted root vegetables.
