Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 Walla Walla Washington (750ML) US Flag In Stock
Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 Walla Walla Washington (750ML)
92 WA 93 WS 92 IWC
"(76% cabernet sauvignon, 14% merlot and 10% petit verdot): Bright red-ruby. Musky cassis, cedar, tobacco leaf and dried herbs on the very ripe nose. Suave and seamless, with claret-like flavors of redcurrant, plum and tobacco leaf. A very distinctive, lightly herbal Old World style of cabernet with dusty, supple tannins and very good length...92" IWC 11/11 "Broad and generous, this is impressive for its graceful balance, with ripe blueberry and currant flavors at the core, persisting into a finish shaded with dried sage, white pepper and other savory notes, all of it wrapped in polished tannins. The finish doesn't quit...93" WS 09/12 "Only around 30% of Bledsoe’s and Figgins’ 2009 Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon – which incorporates 10% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot – is estate-grown, but that percentage is expected to double over the next three years, and eventually Bledsoe envisions an estate wine. Creme de cassis and jellied elderberry dominate the proceedings here, with a lovely but not overdone sense of sweetness, and inflected by hints of dried green herbs, cedar, and a welcome, soy-like saline savor that ensures a mouthwatering finish. While quite evident, the abundant tannins here are fine-grained and in no way disturb the impression of seamlessly pristine fruit. I suspect this will be worth following for at least the better part of a decade...92" WA 12/12
