The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Gott 9 bursts from the glass with an exciting melange of dark plums, grilled herbs, smoke and licorice. It is a big, full-bodied wine loaded with personality. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the rich, textured finish in this dark, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon. This is as good a value as readers will find in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2009 the blend is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot.
Anticipated maturity: 2012 – 2020
