Regusci Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2009
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!
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.
