Very black fruited on the nose with notes of currant and cherry that almost conceal a touch of brett and hints of mint, tea, and bean starch. In the mouth this is lean and crisp with lots of tannin and not a lot of fruit. There's a lot of espresso to be found on the palate and a pleasant, mineral tinged, crisp fruit skin element but the wine is very short. I like the taut structure but this lacks a bit of depth. 87pts


User Reviews for Forman Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker's Notes:

96+ points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is stunning. An exotic, open bouquet melds into dark red fruit in this racy, sexy Cabernet. Espresso, graphite, crushed flowers, spices, mint and licorice are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. All of the elements flow together gracefully to the refined, supple finish. The 2009 will take a few years to come around, but it is dazzling and immensely appealing, even today. The blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot, all from Forman's vineyard at the base of Howell Mountain. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. (Dec 2011)
