2009 St. Clement Armstrong Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Armstrong Ranch is a deep, powerful wine. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame a core of expressive dark red fruit, mineral, mint, licorice and tar. The Armstrong Ranch is one of the bigger, more structured wines in this lineup.
This is a beautiful, fruit-driven wine, offering juicy layers of blueberry, black raspberry and black cherry flavors. Supple and graceful, with refined tannins and a plush mid-palate, the wine has deep notes of cedar and tobacco and a shade of violet candy. This is a full-bodied mountain Cabernet with a pure finish that keeps the fruit front and center. An ideal partner to grilled butterflied leg of lamb or a baked sage risotto.
