2009 Cilla’s Blend
ALC: 14.5% Price: $17.99
Received from Cimarone Wines for review
“This wine is made from exceptional estate grown hillside hand-sorted fruit. Fermentation is performed in open-top barriques using classic manual punchdown. The wine is then brought up for 20 months in a combination of new and neutral French Oak barrels in the cold Cimarone cellar. The full bodied and classically structured wine made from the Cabernet is blended with the ripe Syrah to yield a wine of beauty and elegance – just like Cilla.”
Our Tasting Notes:
Cilla’s Blend is made up of 69% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, 4% Petite Verdot, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. This bold, savory blend was the perfect end to a long day. The Syrah definitely stands out in this wine, and happily so. There are great dark plum flavors, along with some smokiness and spice. Impeccable balance and beautiful harmony among the blended varietals. Looking forward to enjoying this wine again in the future.
