Phipps Family Cellars 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
100% COMBS BROTHERS VINEYARD CABERNET SAUVIGNON
YOUNTVILLE, NAPA VALLEY
36 MONTHS IN 100% FRENCH OAK – 75% NEW & 25% 2-YEAR OAK
Our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolute show-stopper that reflects the extended growing conditions of this exceptional vintage, displaying an elegant lushness of flavor as well as a long, round, and lingering finish. The harmonious character of the vintage is augmented by the more classic impression of weight and fresh precision of the fruit. It is a vintage that offers much complexity early and will repay aging, but is already balanced and integrated.
A classic Napa Valley Cabernet, the 2009 PHIPPS Cabernet is concentrated and powerful, with a mix of ripe, fleshy espresso bean, dried currant and explosive dusty cherry-berry fruit that’s focused and persistent, ending with firm yet integrated tannins. Bone dry, it shows further herb-infused flavors of blackberries, cocoa, spices and smoky sandalwood, and yes, the well-integrated tannins are dusty. While drinkable now, this wine will be best from 2014 through 2020.
