2009 Abreu Cappella Napa Valley Wine Tasting Note

2009 Abreu Cappella  (Napa Valley) 98

Silky, elegant and refined, there is a purity to the fruit and velvety tannins that allow the wine to feel as soft as it does. Yet, this is no wallflower of a wine. The combination of blueberries, espresso, blackberry, chocolate and flowers is alluring. Never tiring to taste, it was the perfect foil for a juicy, rare, grilled New York. This is still youthful at 9, so I imagine it will deliver high quality enjoyment for at least another 15-20 years or longer.

Incense, clay, vanilla and a wide array of ripe black and blue fruits create the perfume. On the palate, the wine is rich, intense, full bodied and concentrated with layers of sweet dark, perfectly ripe cherries. The fruit displays incredible purity. The finish is long, lush and lusty.
