La Merika – 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
Availability: in stock
The 2009 vintage was mild, but early rains in October led to a complex harvest. After a dry winter and cool spring, fruit development from bud break through berry set progressed normally with yields just above average. As picking began in August, the quality of the fruit was amazing; however, a week of heavy rains in the middle of October threatened to dilute sugar levels. After waiting several days for the fruit to recuperate, the overall quality remained high, resulting in harvested fruit packed with brilliant, concentrated flavor and color.
