The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Coeur de Vallee (a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Cabernet Franc) possesses great intensity and richness as well as sweet tannins and remarkable concentration and intensity.
Rich, full and extracted, with dense dried currant, blackberry, tar, licorice and mocha flavors. Impeccably balanced, ending with ripe, fine-grained tannins that give the flavors traction.
Aromas of redcurrant, pomegranate, licorice and dusty brown spices, lifted by a floral topnote. Sweet, silky and pliant in the mouth, with a gentle quality to the blackberry, licorice and potpourri flavors.
