Peju Province Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009
Editorial Reviews for Peju Province Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Leafy and light at first, with slow-to-build aromas of earth, light toast, cocoa, and crushed berry fruit emerging with air along with a gamy mutton-like edge.Smooth with juicy acidity on entry, this is full of dark berry fruit wrapped up in Tootsie rolls and damp earth. The tannins are a bit drying and relatively abundant on the palate, adding a little dry nuttiness which also hints at some dried herbal notes along with dark plummy fruit that leads to a spicy, dry finish. There's a lot of wine here, I'm just not sure that the oak and tannins will ever come into balance. 91pts

Lush, concentrated, rich and intriguing, this decadent example of a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon affirms the well-suited terroir for this particular varietal. Opulent flavors of blackberry and cassis and ambrosial raspberry preserves reveal hints of clove, cedar, violets, cinnamon and brown sugar, and cocoa nibs. Voluptuous body, bright acidity, elegant, ripe fruit, lush tannins and a long finish make this an undeniably excellent wine.
