Bonded Winery #9 has 635 planted vineyard acres and the property is the ninth largest planted acreage in Napa County. The Company is committed to growing grapes without the use of chemicals. Certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers, Bonded Winery #9 uses organic vineyard management techniques. Selective leaf and shoot removal reduces fungus and mildew pressure. Cover crops like oats, peas, mustard and vetch, are planted between rows to naturally inhibit soil erosion, reduce dust, restore nutrients and encourage microbiological activity. Even grape skins and stems are composted after harvest and added back to the soil, replenishing nitrogen and potassium and increasing microbiological activity. The 635 vineyard acres are divided between Oakville (35%) and Yountville (65%), two distinguished appellations within Napa Valley. Within the vineyards are several distinctive blocks, each having a specific name. These vineyard names began making their debuts on prestigious wine labels in the late 1990’s. Read less

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

A bold wine with cherry and chocolate notes. Long legs suggest high alcohol content. A nice choice but not a great value.

Earthy. Tannic. Structured. Drinks elegantly but should age well. An impressive cab.

A big, rich, expressive style thatrsquo;s intense and concentrated, with ripe, firm, vibrant black cherry, blackberry, currant, anise and spicy, toasty oak, which adds a nice flavor dimension. Best from 2009 through 2014.

Better balanced is the impressive 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by plenty of cregrave;me de cassis, charcoal, roasted herb, and licorice notes. Medium to full-bodied and ripe with elegance, substance, and well-integrated tannins, it should drink well for 15ndash;20 years.

A beautiful Cabernet. Dark, dry and elegantly structured, it has classic Napa tannins and is nicely trimmed in acidity. The flavors are complex and delicious, suggesting ripe blackberries, black currants and cedar. Drink now-2015.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits notes of roasted herbs, black currants, loamy soil and underbrush, a generous mouthfeel and the vintagersquo;s tell-tale flamboyance and exuberance. Already drinkable, it should continue to evolve for 10ndash;12 years.

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2006 Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard 750ml

The 2006 vintage has bright and elegant aromas of cherry, blackberry, tobacco, spice and roses. On the palate the wine leads into a balanced and full attack of ripe blackberries, cherries with deep dark chocolate and coffee in the mid-palate, to a long and lingering finish of toffee, orange peel, and cherries. Well balanced with great weight and structure. Will cellar well.
