2009 St. Clement Star Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Star Vineyard flows across the palate with layers of dark, seamless fruit. It is a soft, textured wine graced with soft, supple tannins and a silky personality. Tar, smoke and licorice add considerable complexity and nuance on the finish.
Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.
Star Vineyard produced another winner in 2009, a Cabernet with lush, generous flavors of blackberry, kirsch, cola berry and root beer and sweet undertones of cocoa, dark chocolate and espresso. Seamless from entry to finish, this is a rich, velvety, mouth filling wine with satiny tannins and a persistent, open-textured finish. A complete and delectable wine, ideal with slow roasted osso buco or grilled fig-topped pizza.
