2009 Snowden Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa Valley

This is what is good about Napa cab. Plums and cranberries on the nose. Deep, rich fruit on the palate, black cherries, currants, plums, bit of tobacco and licorice. Beautifully resolved tannins, lovely acidity, great balance. The dark fruited finish is long and lingering with a bit of spice. Beautiful wine. Drinking beautifully now and for a few years more. "A"
