Alta Napa Valley "Oso Malo" Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Boutique Napa Valley vineyard and winery in the Atlas Peak district. Family owned and operated. Handcrafted Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc.
A small production (approx. 220 cases). This is a Fabulous Cabernet Value that will hang with the higher priced competition (Many of the $50-90 over-priced Cabs). A sweet candy like nose. Medium bodied with a ruby purple reddish color. A Cab that is concentrated and focused. Sweet fruit, blackberry, blueberry, violet well integrated fruit, oak and a slight hint of creamy coco notes that are just right. I like this wine. Two thumbs up! 91 and getting better.
