Tallulah Cabernet Sauvignon "Md2" Napa Valley 2009

Member Review by Fred Swan:

This full-bodied Cabernet comes from a single undisclosed vineyard in Coombsville. Its nose is dark spice, cassis and dusty dry leaves. Slightly chalky chocolate ganache, black currant and spice make up the lengthy palate. 153 cases. 92 points

After 17 years of making wine for DeLoach, J Wine, Far Niente, and Luna, Mike Drash and his wife Tracy are going out on their own. The opportunity has arisen to purchase the Tallulah brand from a member of the Copain winemaking staff, John Raytek.. The name Tallulah is near and dear to our heart with our 3 year old daughter carrying the same name. Also, Tallulah Bankhead is a distant cousin on Mike's side of the family in Mississippi. With the 2009 harvest, Tallulah will continue on with a Rhone focus but also add some vineyards that Mike has excelled at in his career in the Napa Valley. The goal is to work with single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Syrah and Marsanne from Organic and Sustainable vineyards in Napa and Sonoma. The winemaking will reflect a minimalist approach striving to nurture the wines instead of "making" them. Read less
