2009 Joseph Phelps "Backus" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1120873 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A stylish, elegant youngster, with vivid mocha-covered raspberry, blackberry, red and black licorice flavors. Full-bodied and notably complex, tight and focused, ending with a persistent beam of flavors and firm tannins, with a dash of tobacco and cedar. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2010)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard is very nicely balanced from start to finish. In this vintage, the Backus isn’t as overtly ripe as it can be. Hints of tobacco, crushed flowers, new leather and spices add complexity to the inky black fruit. Firm, powerful tannins suggest it will be years before the 2009 is ready to provide maximum pleasure. From time to time, the wine’s inner perfume and expressive black fruit show a glimpse of their potential, but the 2009 is a wine that begs for cellaring. (AG) 94+ Inner quote mark (12/2012)
