VARIETAL COMPOSITION: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Merlot
The nose of the 2009 VELLUM leaps from the glass with top notes of cassis and exotic spice, a heart of aged briar and creosote and a base note of wild dark blackberry. This deep ruby wine is surprisingly seductive with lots of intense brambly fruit. It covers the palate broadly all at once with muscular layers of fine tarry extract and seamless integrated oak. The finish is wonderfully long and vibrant and it possesses a grand lasting persistence.
