Mixed Case of 2009 & 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (12 - 750ml)
Wine lovers appreciate the opportunity to taste a young vintage against one that’s had the benefit of additional aging. And we guarantee you won’t find this opportunity to compare five and thirteen-year-old Cabernets anywhere else.
This mixed case includes six bottles of each vintage. A great way to add depth to your cellar or hand out the bottles individually as gifts.
With thirteen years of age, the 2009 is soft and elegant with aromas of ripe plums, blackberries, capaccio and black pepper. It is well integrated with flavors of dark chocolate, Picholine olives and forest floor. It has a nice structure and a long, lingering finish. If cellared carefully, it will continue to develop and mature for at least another eight years.
In comparison, the 2017 Cabernet is fruit-forward and youthful. It opens with ripe aromas of blackberries, cassis and Bing cherries. Bright and lively on the palate, it has notes of nutmeg, fresh mint and steak tartare. Its long, chewy finish adds depth and complexity to the wine. At five years of age, the 2017 is young in comparison to its predecessors, but it has the structure and richness to age well for at least fifteen years.
Winemaker's Notes will be enclosed with details comparing the two vintages. A fascinating tasting in the making.
