20. Girard Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley (2009)

« Prev Next » 20 of 35
Smoky with notes of hickory nuts, leather, shoe polish and intense black fruits on the nose. This is an impressive wine, polished and focused yet at the same time it's somewhat massive and a bit of a black hole in the mouth. The wood tannins fits like a glove over the generous black and slightly blue tinged fruits, but obscures some of the detail here. The overall impression is one of black smoothness with some minty and toasty details emerging on the back end and gaining ground on the moderately long, slightly medicinal finish. I shouldn’t like this as much as I do but like a black hole, it draws you in. 90pts
