2009 Gundlach Bundschu "Mountain Cuvée" Sonoma County Red Wine

SKU #1093408 Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This reasonably priced blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Malbec is an excellent example of California winemaking. Lots of berry fruit, pepper, earth, spice box and underbrush as well as hints of wood and incense can be found in the aromas and flavors of this medium-bodied, dense ruby/purple-tinged 2009. Drink it over the next year or so. Inner quote mark (10/2012)

K&L Notes

Winemaker notes: "A serious yet easy-drinking red blend, loaded with deep black cherry and brambly blackberry fruit flavors, surrounded by cocoa powder, fresh tobacco and black spice accents. Juicy, lush is full of dense berry and cocoa. A rich, fruit-forward wine intended to be enjoyed within five years of the vintage."

With an illustrious history in Sonoma Valley winemaking going back 154 years, looming six generations, Gundlach Bundschu continues to weave stunning, flavorful wines for much less than one would expect from such a venerable producer. The 2009 Mountain Cuveé holds court with a bit more Cabernet Sauvignon (42%) and slightly less Merlot (28%) than last year, with 6% Zinfandel added to bolster the spectrum of brambly dark fruits and enticing mountain spice. Notes of tobacco leaf, black cherry and creamy cocoa frame the dense, juicy, long finish. Serve this red wine with a generous pile of baby back ribs, sweet cornbread and fennel cole slaw...

Gundlach Bundschu's Mountain Cuvée combines Merlot, Cab, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Syrah from the Rhinefarm Estate Vineyard in the Sonoma Valley. This Rocks!, on the palate flavors of black cherry and plum and soft floral notes blend with silky tannins, the cab gives this a backbone that you feel and an incredible long finish.
