Winemaker Lood Kotze Notes
Cabernet Sauvignon comprises the largest planted acreage at Cass, thus we have the ability to choose from a variety of sites, soils, and clones across the vineyard. Picked in mid- September, the grapes were fermented into 5-ton open top fermenters and pumped over multiple times per day to achieve maximum extraction, aged 24 months in French Oak, 75% of which was new. Another fantastic wine from a phenomenal vintage at Cass Vineyard, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon displays the powerful character and impeccable balance that can only be achieved amidst perfect ripening conditions. The aromatics are downright huge on the entry, filled with warm winter spice notes of cinnamon and clove that accompany baked plum, currant, cassis, and cedar. ...more... The palate is a full bore, mouth-coating experience of baked black cherry, cola, licorice, red plum, and fig jam. Consistent with the nose are flavors of warm spices, complemented by high notes of brown sugar and wintergreen. Soft and full, the tannins are sweet and integrated, showing good mid palate traction and a spicy body that trails off with a burst of melted cherry. A classic Cabernet from Cass and clearly one of the most outstanding in recent years.
