Tres Sabores Rutherford Perspective Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A five barrel selection from our home vineyard, this proud, feisty 2010 Cabernet has a dusty blackberry nose of considerable proportion that yields to dried plums, cedar, and a compendium of sweet mixed spices featuring star anise. The flavors are bold and plush with a velvet interior –overall the impression is one of rounded elegance. We recommend a purchase of at least three bottles: one for tomorrow’s decanter, one for a dinner party in a year or two, one for much longer aging in your cellar.

The Vineyards, Ranch, and Winery of Tres Sabores: "Three savory flavors" are nestled against the western Hills of Rutherford where Julie Johnson and her family grow organically certified Zinfandel, Cabernet, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. The Tres Sabores collection comprises three sumptuous bottlings from the Napa Valley: Rutherford Perspective Cabernet Sauvignon, Tres Sabores Zinfandel and a delightful Zinfandel-based blend: ¿Por qué no? We are also fortunate to source grapes and make a zesty and rich single-vineyard Sauvignon blanc from Farina Vineyard in the Sonoma Mountain appellation of Sonoma County....All of our wines celebrate the creativity of winemaking, encourage you to explore your own ideas about taste as well as expand your personal enjoyment of wine "beyond terroir". Visitors to winery are personally welcomed by the owner, winemaker for a tour of the winery and vineyard, as well as a barrel tasting in the cave. Guests may make additional arrangements for a vineyard-side picnic gathering under the canopy of a century-old olive grove, olive oil or pomegranate tastings in season, as well as a personal introduction to the resident Goldens, sheep, and guinea hens. Travel into the western benchland off Whitehall Lane and discover the distinctive and truly enticing character of Rutherford. Read less

Tight on the nose with gentle suggestions of flowers, sweet mint and subtle toasted oak spice. Smooth, rich and polished in the mouth with a supple, slightly chewy feel to it. The fruit is generous and fills the palate with crushed blackberry and black currant flavors but this comes off as a touch simple with jammy and candied licorice tones on the mid-palate leading to a dusty, moderately long finish. Relatively easy to drink this seems like it should improve. 89pts

An elegant nose: blackcurrant and cocoa with a trace of bay leaf. Medium-plus-bodied in the mouth with blackcurrant, powdery mocha and dark chocolate framed by medium-plus chalky and grainy tannins. Decant now or drink from 2015 to 2022. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. 200 cases. 92 points
