2016 CRU9 “9TH POWER” CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Finding a Cabernet Sauvignon from the East side of Oakville near Screaming Eagle, Rudd and Vine Cliff at this price always nice. The moment we tasted Cru9’s 9th Power Cabernet, the level of quality was so surreal that it hit us like an epiphany when we tasted it. On the Eastern side the soils are red in color and loaded with minerals and volcanic composites. Due to an NDA agreement the winery can’t identify the exact vineyard location, but they’ve dubbed it Magic Mountain, because it comes from the slopes of the Vaca Mountains, where the soils have excellent drainage and are capable of producing Cabernets in the multi-hundred dollar range…
A powerful blend of 100% Cabernet enhanced by 20 months in French oak barrels, this flagship wine from CRU9 is extremely limited with just 4 barrels made. Notably, CRU9 also gives back and helps support two nonprofit women shelters, Ruby’s Place in CA and House of Hope in IA. Every time you buy a CRU9 bottle, you also help level the playing field for survivors of human trafficking, domestic abuse, and homelessness.

Tasting Notes: "CRU9 9th Power Cabernet 2016 has a medium purple color and offers a beautifully penetrating nose of cherry cola, vanilla cream, fresh tobacco leaf, wet stone and hints of cinnamon. An incredibly balanced palate that is concentrated without being cloying, focused with a slight tension along with a broad shouldered structure and linear style. Flavors of Bing cherry, red currant, pipe tobacco combine beautifully with slightly dusty tannins and a finish that lingers for over a minute. Drink now through 2029." 96 Points, Master Sommelier Kevin M. Vogt
