2009 Abreu "Cappella" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1146430 97 points Vinous

 A glorious wine, the 2009 Cappella is in a fabulous spot for drinking today, as the aromatics are just starting to open up. Rose petal, kirsch, hard candy, spice, cedar, tobacco, mint and star anise give the 2009 striking perfume and a level of exoticism that is impossible to miss. The tannins have softened, which makes the wine accessible, and yet the fruit retains terrific freshness as well as nuance. Readers lucky enough to own the 2009 are in for a real treat. The Cappella is an absolute jewel of a wine. (AG)  (6/2019)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2009 Cappella, which is nearly three-fourths Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and a tiny quantity of Merlot, possesses an inky/purple color and sweet notes of incense, violets, espresso beans, white chocolate and lots of creme de cassis and blackberries. There is plenty of glycerin, but unlike a lot of 2009s, despite relatively elevated tannins, the wine is open, showy and exuberant, which I consider to be a positive. Production was tiny, with only 250 cases produced. (RP)  (10/2013)
