2009 Parallel Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (750mL)

Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes

"In a cooler year than normal during the growing season, we harvested the grapes before the heavy rainfall of late October under perfect conditions. The nose reveals ripe red fruit, freshness and licorice in a inviting and seductive package. The mouthfeel has plenty of depth with great minerality, velvety texture, pure red sweet cherry and soft integrated tannins."

91 Points - Wine and Spirits Magazine

"Violets, green herb and dill accent this wine’s red fruit, a blend from Parallel’s Conn Valley estate and other vineyards under contract in Napa Valley. It’s plush and juicy without being super ripe, allowing the fresher side of cabernet to show in conifer-like spice. Built for roast lamb."

89 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"Made in the Parallel style of soft, rich tannins and ultraripe fruit, this Cabernet is instantly flashy for its wealth of blackberries, black currants, dark chocolate and oak. Defines the modern Napa style, although it's too soft to age, so drink up."
