2009 Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes

The Metaphora 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous and well rounded with expressive layers of dark red and black fruit, vanilla, roasted coffee beans, tobacco, graphite, and hints of volcanic earthiness. The firm Howell Mountain tannins are softened with superb clone 29 Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from the valley floor, Saint Helena appellation, making this dynamic wine extremely approachable now, but with ample structure to enjoy well into the next decade.
