2009 CASPAR ESTATE
CABERNET SAUVIGNON TASTING NOTES
Caspar Estate wines express the terroir of our property located in Rutherford. Positioned on the sloping hillside just above the fog line overlooking Napa Valley, Caspar Estate provides an ideal, unique environment to grow Cabernet Sauvignon.
Tannins frame the massive fruit and spice profile nicely. Finish is powerful and intense, with bright acidity and length to balance. Lay this wine down and pull a cork in 5 years. Should age for 20+ years.
varietal 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
fermentation 100% in new Barrique
oak aging 24 Months in new Barrique
nose Aromatics of blackberry, menthol, smoke, tobacco and chocolate
palate Full-bodied with a tight tannic structure.
