2009 Moulds Cabernet Sauvignon
Moulds Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is the final wine in our 2009 vintage vineyard designate series. The bright, ruby red color belies the dark chocolate, cassis, toasted oak and telecherry aromas of the bouquet. Flavors of grilled steak and black cherries fill the pretty, focused palate before finishing with a hint of graphite. The perfectly balanced acidity makes this wine an ideal pairing for food and indicates that it will age beautifully as well.

Good dark red. Highly aromatic nose exudes black cherry and violet. Juicy, spicy and penetrating, with lively but well-integrated acidity giving early appeal to the flavors of cassis, blackberry, violet, spices and bitter chocolate and extending the fruit on the aftertaste. There's an enticing perfume here that struck me as almost cabernet franc-like. Finishes with very good juicy cut and spicy persistence.

Dense and chewy, rustic yet satisfying, with rich currant, blackberry and black licorice flavors that show touches of cedar and spice. Ends with gripping tannins. Drink now through 2022.
