Steven Kent Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose and aromatically driven by cinnamon dusted vanilla aromas and a huge pipe tobacco, briary top note. Very low on the palate and a bit chewy with fruit extract, this is a smooth, plush wine filled with blueberry pie filling and candied black cherry flavors all layered over sweet toasty oaky spice. In ti’s style it’s quite well done but this is too fruity for my palate and dries out quickly on the finish leaving behind wood flavors and tannin along. 87pts

This is clearly a situational wine for me. With has a berry and licorice nose. Full bodied with earthy-leather taste and a smoky medium finish. The reason I think its situational is because I could really see this wine going very very well with a hardy cigar. Over time the aromas open up more and even more earth and smoke become noticeable. Highly recommend if you're a wine and cigar enthusiast (for that crowd I'd give it a 4).

The aromas are wonderfully redolent of dark chocolate covered cherries, black pepper, and purple plums.
