Gundlach Bundschu Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley 2009

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Generous aromas of blackberry and cassis with wisps of violets. Dense, vibrant flavors of polished black fruit, including black currant and blackberries, loaded with deep dark chocolate and a touch of graphite. Concentrated and lush on the palate, with opulent fruit, excellent weight and beautifully integrated oak notes. Bright natural acidity and structured tannins enhance exceptionally long finish. Delicious upon release; optimal cellaring time 5 to 15 years from vintage. - WineryWinemaking & Analyses• Five day cold soak before fermentations with indigenous & D254 yeast strains. 28-32 days maceration.• Extraction through gentle pumpovers tailored by lot, using louvers and screens to eliminate pumping skins and seeds.• Eighteen months in 100% French oak, 45% new. Thin stave, tight grain. Primary coopers Vicard, Taransaud & Ermitage.• 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5 % Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec and 1% Merlot• 14.4% alcohol. TA 0.58g/100...

At Gundlach Bundschu we define sustainability broadly, seeking not only to be responsible stewards of the land, but also to preserve this land for future generations of our family. There is nothing static about this view of sustainability—it requires innovation and action. We believe that preserving the unique ecosystem of Rhinefarm is essential to wine quality, as well as to the health of our family and business. The introduction of beneficial predators, from owls and bluebirds to beetles and mites, and intensive pest monitoring allows us to eliminate all regular use of pesticides, use no pre-emergent herbicides and limit the use of aggressive herbicides. Cover crops contribute vital diversity and nutrition to the soils, and we utilize registered organic compounds and practices whenever possible. Vigilant management of our acute deficit irrigation program and water reclamation ponds promote conservation, recycling 70% of winery water. We use biodiesel to fuel our tractors, and continually seek ways to enhance environmental quality and make the most efficient use of resources. Like many of his family members before him, Jeff Bundschu is striving to redefine the estate vision to meet the industry challenges of the times. With superb vineyards and a talented team of employees, he is excited about the future of the estate. “Each generation of my family that has stood on this dirt felt compelled to looking at the vines and wines with a fresh eye. Our winery’s evolution is destined—families evolve. Land evolves. Plants evolve. Palates evolve.” Equally important to Bundschu is the preservation of the open-minded and spirited culture with which the winery has long been associated. “Our life here at Gundlach Bundschu, with its wine and good people, has always been about laughter, hard work, enjoying the inspiration that comes from being in such a beautiful place, and sharing what we have with our friends and neighbors.” Tasting Room Our intimate tasting room can only accomodate small groups, and we request groups of eight or more reserve a private tour for your visit.
