Powers Cabernet Sauvignon Wahluke Slope Reserve Coyote Vineyard 2009

Member Review by jtryka:

The color of this wine is a deep, opaque purple color that eases into some bright ruby along the edges. The nose is a lovely combination of cedar, dark chocolate, anise and fresh ground black pepper. The taste is a veritable explosion of ripe black fruit up front, ripe plum, blackberries and cherry, but not nearly as sweet as some of the more "jammy" wines you might have had. The rich fruit transitions smoothly to some nice minerality midpalate, along with wonderful notes of dark chocolate and Asian spice. The finish is just stunning, as the well structured tannins support a rich dry finish that seems to go on for a minute or more.
