Smith Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very fresh on the nose with an early touch of light mocha cream, some smoke, fines herbs with a nice minty top note over bright black fruits. On entry this shows bright acids and feels remarkably transparent, bathing the tongue with bright, tart, blackberry fruit that has just a little medicinal edge. The finish is nice, rich and soft with excellent length and lovely cherry fruit on the finale. This just feels lovely in the mouth—what a great texture. 93pts
