    Winemaker's Notes:

    This charming Cabernet delivers a classic Bordeaux profile, with excellent structure and balance. It flaunts complex flavors of blackcurrant, cherry, and dark chocolate, tinged with alluring herbal and spice notes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 The Glass Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is matured for 12 months in oak with racking every four. It has a lifted, slightly “briny” bouquet with good definition. The palate is full-bodied with firm tannins, a grainy texture with a dry, quite austere tobacco-laced finish. Showing impressive grip and persistence, I suggest leaving this for another 12 months in bottle. Drink 2013-2020.

    The Wine Advocate

    This is a very nice Cab at an extremely friendly price. Smoke and deep black fruit are the first impressions from the bouquet, with aromas of whole tobacco leaf and balsamic reduction appearing upon further nosing. Filling and velvety in the mouth, a kiss of charred oak and roasted cocoa nibs remain through the close.
