The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve spent 12 months in French oak. Cassis, chocolate, and a hint of mint inform the nose of a dense, concentrated, ripe Cabernet that over-delivers for its humble price. Drink this outstanding value over the next 5–6 years.

Named after a prehistoric cave that features a very early form of art, where hands are stenciled on the walls and painted with various colors. Starting out stoically and muscular with dusty tannins, this Cab rides tall in the saddle with the bravado of a caballero. The fruit is tight and restrained, literally not showing much at all mdash; that is, until itrsquo;s had the time to open up and display its inner beauty like the blossoming of a rose petal. As the caterpillar emerges from the cocoon and the butterfly takes wing, the wine transforms into a potpourri of velvety fruit layered with complex mineral and spice elements. Well, at least thatrsquo;s what I got out of it.

We loved the wonderful aromas from this Cabernet mdash; dark berry, currant, cedar, eucalyptus and a hint of leather. The tannins are a bit strong, so let it breathe for a while and pair with a juicy steak.
