Ruston Family Cabernet Sauvignon la Maestra 2009

Member Review by vin0vin0:

Big fruit, slightly jammy but not overly complex. Very light tannin, green tea, dark blue and black cooked fruit and a medium finish.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

A beautifully complex but easy drinking cabernet blend. A napa gem and bargain if you can find it.

Bright ruby red. The nose is very Bordeaux like. Lots of led pencil shavings, red-cherry, red currants and tar. The red frit profile feels a bit restrained, remiscent of Bordeaux, but theres much going on here to really like. Good medium weight mouth-feel, lot of what sems like secondaries of tar and cedar with some petroleum. (I think of the Petrol refinery across from Latour when-ever I get this). Could that be healthy? Anywho, this has a strong tannin base, and I believe this will be wonderful for the nex 10 years. A slightly elevated acid level makes eating with this one imperative. The petit and cab franc really make themselves heard in this one. All in all a nicely structured and well balanced Cali blend.
