2009 Agharta Mountain Terraces Cabernet Sauvignon
We are very proud to announce the release of our first of many ‘White Label’ 100% Cabernet Sauvignon based wines. This classically styled Cabernet hails from the dramatic mountainous landscape called Mountain Terraces Vineyard located high above Sonoma Valley.
Deep dark aromas of dusty plums, bittersweet chocolate, sweet herbs and melted black licorice lurk in the blackness of this wine. The mouth is very full, richly textured and loaded with concentrated cassis, melted licorice, sweet herbs and an excellent lift and definition from the mountain grown tannins that this wine has in spades. The finish is replete with sweet cocoa, black licorice, dusty tannins and a lingering sweetness of black fruit and vanilla bean. The 2009 Agharta Mountain Terraces Cabernet Sauvignon is very drinkable now…especially with a large piece of red meat…but with enough tannins and concentration to improve in the bottle for many years to come.
