Winemaker Notes

An excellent vintage, 2009 produced a wine with generous aromas and flavors of ripe black cherries, plums, cola berry, and cocoa powder, deftly balanced with the sweet toasty notes of classy French oak. Velvety-smooth, this is what I call an "instant gratification" wine, though cellaring will undoubtedly reward the collector with additional layers of complex flavors.

Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Good deep ruby. Varietally precise aromas of cassis, licorice and menthol. Broad, serious cabernet with considerable power and concentration to its flavors of cassis and bitter chocolate. This chewy, dense wine appears to have more stuffing to support its tannins than the Cimarossa. Finishes with a lingering licorice note.
Range: 91-93

V 92
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Another compelling wine, Sbragia's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Wall Vineyard is full of implosive energy. Bitter chocolate, menthol, plums, licorice and tar explode from the glass in a rich, powerful wine loaded with Mt. Veeder character. The superb, vivid saline-infused finish adds to the wine's personality and energy. There is no shortage of personality here. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

Dense and earthy, with a cedary forest floor rusticity and chewy tannins. Yet for all its crushed rock and graphite chewiness, this succeeds, becoming more appealing on the finish. Drink now through 2026.
