7. Smith-Madrone Spring Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (2009)

« Prev 7 of 7
Average price: $48.99 from 10 stores
Lots of toasty mocha oak greets the nose along with ginger, cinnamon and floral aromas. This is very pretty, with a little coffee cream on the super supple entry. The acids are very well integrated here, showing off lovely cut plum and sapid red fruit flavors, all topped with a hint of mintiness on the back end. Super fine tannins on the finish add smooth textural support to the rich black currant and black raspberry fruit. Although this is tight, it shows superb balance, and while the oak is dominant at this early stage, everything is in place to evolve beautifully. 92pts
