Reviewing One of the Finest Napa Valley Wines
I am absolutely compelled to report on a newly released wine that, as far as I can tell, is among the finest Napa Valley wines.
This 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley can be described as boasting black jammy fruits, cassis, freshly plowed earth and dark chocolate.
I can also report the opulence and massive texture is undeniable while the glycerol-like body and silky tannins elegantly glide through an expansive, palatable finish.
The wine is unquestionably reflective of a winemaking effort aimed at producing wine in the most precise and expressive way possible. Intuition and talent must have been at the heart of the effort behind this wine. The wine is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Aged for 20 months in 70% new French oak, this signature and voluminous wine will retail for $110.
Disclosure: I have not tasted this wine. However, I was sent a wonderful press release anouncing the release of the wine and explaining its remarkable qualities. However, no sample was offered for me to try. But if the wine's release is worthy of a press release, surely it is worthy of writing about.
