5. T Vine DOC Gold Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley (2009)

« Prev 5 of 5
Previously available for $59.99
Intense, over the top aromas of char, toast black spice, black tea, and with air a lovely braised herb note that adds gorgeous herbaceousness to the core of rich black currant fruit. Supple, and even a touch a soft in the modern style on the palate, this is powerful yet easy going, with lots of raspberry tinged black fruit on the palate and spicy oak driving the moderately long finish. Surprisingly good acids stick through the moderately long finish,which is decidedly oaky, but not sweet. This is quintessential modern Napa Cabernet, big, smooth, fruity and well balanced with plenty of oak but the intensity of fruit to handle it. Definitely not everyone’s cup of Cabernet, but if this is your style you’ll love it. 92pts

  • 77883DM94523 I have to recommend the District Cabernet series from Raymond Vineyards. Each of these wines is from a specific AVA within the Napa Valley (Calistoga, Rutherford, Oakville, St Helena) and retails for around $75. Winemaker Stephanie Putnam (formerly of Far Niente) really knows her Cab!
