Regusci Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Headily lush on the nose with deep black fruit--think cherry and blackberry--balanced with sweet floral notes, shavings of chocolate and subtle minerality. The palate delights in rich, ripe, fat, rounded and juicy black and red currant fruit, smoky spices and softly tart tannins. A finish that unfolds into deepening layers of black current and engaging casis, reminds us why we make wine. Pull the cork now or wait 8-10 years if you can!

"Ghost Winery" is the name given to the few remaining early Napa Valley wineries that were in existence between 1860 and 1900. Very few of these Ghost Wineries remain as the vineyards of most Napa Valley wineries were decimated by the phylloxera infestation of the 1890's. The economic depression of that decade was the final blow for many others. As a result, most of these wineries were abandoned or forced into bankruptcy and then laid dormant through prohibition. Over the years that followed, many fell into disrepair and were dismantled or absorbed into newer, more modern facilities. One example of a fantastically preserved Ghost Winery is located on the Regusci Ranch - the T.L. Grigsby-Occidental Winery. Read less

Pretty big nose--I get oak and blackberry. Great initial mouth feel. Some berry flavor, nice acid. Tannin kinda sneaks up on you. At first you get the fruit and you're thinking no tannin at all. Then from mid-palate back it kinda crescendos--not overwhelming, but, pop, there it is. US$39.99 at Wine Club in Santa Ana.
