Barra of Mendocino Cabernet Sauvignon Mendocino County 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose with a touch of creamy cafe au lait under the core of gentle red fruit with some mint and nutty top notes. This is lush and slightly sweet on entry with nice acidity lending freshness and excellent clarity to the palate.The fruit leans towards the black raspberry range of the spectrum and this shows impressive ifs subtle complexity with subtle, toast, herbal and almost tomato fruit character that extends across the fairly long finish. This feels great in the mouth and really has a lovely flavor profile. 88pts
