2009 Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Charlie Smith Vineyard

High above the fog line in the Sonoma mountains lies a secluded vineyard offering succulent fruit and breathtaking views. The valley below is covered by a sea of white clouds as far as the eye can see, while up among Charlie Smith’s terraced vines the morning sun warms the grapes glistening with dew. Stéphane has harnessed the natural potential of this stunning property to craft a wine of immense beauty and allure. Its sweet and pure aromas unfold in the glass with cassis and red currants, delicate white smoke, and wintergreen, while its voluptuously textured mouth-feel supports sexy and savory flavors of crushed blackberries, violet and polished new leather.
