Marques Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This was a classic, nearly-textbook growing season of warm, sunny days and cool, foggy nights punctuated by a couple of brief heat blasts - the perfect recipe for long, flavor-building hangtime and ideal balance of sugar and acid. It was remarkably smooth sailing as we harvested the To Kalon Vineyard for the Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon from September 29 through October 10, just before a rare tropical storm blew in on October 13. The most common themes for the vintage were low yields of small, flavorful berries and excellent flavor maturity at favorable, relatively-low sugar levels.

Very dark in the glass with red tinge around the edges. Big oaky nose. Interestingly, it is not as big on the palate as I would expect from a Napa Valley Cab. There is a nice amount of berry and cassis fruit, but tannins are well restrained. This is a very nice, drikable Cab to go with a casual meal--we're having grilled burgers, tonight. I know I bought this at Costco, and I'm pretty sure it was less than US$20.

Tree fruit aromas of pear and quince combine with delicate floral notes and a pinch of nutmeg spice to showcase the true essence of the Chardonnay grape. Influence from French oak barrels adds a hint of vanilla custard and smooth texture.

Helles Grün-Gelb. Gelber Apfel, Quitte und Doldenblüten in der verführerischen Nase, dahinter Babyananas, Blütenhonig und Williamsbirne, unterlegt mit duftigen Holunderblüten und feiner Vanillenote. Eleganter Gaumen mit unverkennbarer Chardonnay-Fülle und wiederum viel gelber Frucht, gute Balance und zartcremiger Fluss bis ins fruchtbetonte Finale.
