Tasting Notes
Our 2009 Villa Vista has the tell-tale melted wax and red currants, but is made even more complex by the smell of lilac! It is a fresh mouthful of a wine that is loaded with flavor without being heavy.
Ratings
92 Points - Wine Spectator"Supple-textured, harmonious and layered, offering dried berry, spice, subtle earth and herb notes that fan out, gaining depth and body, with the tannins making a sneaky apperance on the finish. Drink now through 2014." -JL

Production Notes
When looking at the weather data from the growing season of 2009, I see perfect moderate to warm temperatures between véraison and the onset of harvest in mid-September followed by a very cool late September through the end of October. What this did was give us an average size crop of perfectly ripe fruit that we were in no particular hurry to pull off the vines. Seed tannins were particularly soft and the juice/skin to seed ratio was higher than normal which resulted in very supple wines.Wine lots and barrels selected for our Villa Vista Cabernet Sauvignon don’t necessarily come from a particular spot on the estate (à la Vineyard Designate), but rather share common flavor and structural attributes that highlight bright red fruit and a balance of sweet and savory spice aromas.
