Cimarossa Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

#AgedWineTuesday

This 12 year old Napa Cabernet is drinking so very nicely now.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, chocolates, cola, tobacco, coffee and peppercorn.

Full bodied rich, extracted and delicious.

Medium acidity with a long finish and soft tannins.

Dry on the palate and very fruity.

This Single Vineyard could age for another 10 years, but I really enjoyed it at this stage.

Wine spectator's 97 points.

Very enjoyable and yummy. Good by itself as a sipping wine.

A very small production of only 9 barrels.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

$155 (current vintage).

Good god. This is stunning. Tastes like it was just bottled. I just shit my pants. A little hot on the finish, but the overall presentation carries this home.
@David L, such a nice touch my brother!

Great Q, @Alexandre Pagliano. They have more similarities than differences. The Larkmead is more suave, while the Bevan displays a more bold, riper and tannic expression. Net net, I consider Larkmead to be a more sophisticated wine. It’s also a cab, as opposed to a blend.

I have Larkmead on my mind. I should have referenced Cade. Apologies for my error.
