Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fairly intense black fruit greets the nose supported by notes of lead pencil, vanilla, and dried herbs, all topped with a nice dusty earth note. Rich and yet slightly tight in the mouth, this delivers good depth of flavor, wrapping black currant and black plum fruit in assertive but not overpowering wood spice and topping it all off with aromatic herbal notes in the mouth. The tannins here are firm and slightly assertive, but well buffered by rich fruit with plenty of acidity to keep things juicy. Late arriving notes of mushroom and truffle along with a hint of black pepper add complexity that lingers on the finish, which shows off black currant fruit with a hint of herbs, and a slight touch of heat as well. 91pts
