Wente's 2009 Southern Hills Cab continues to improve on the previous two vintages with increased intensity and excellent balance - there is very little not to like here. Still in the mid-weight category, this Cab brims with ripe red fruit on the nose with pleasant hints of spice and cedar. The palate delivers pleasing blackberry and dark cherry with a sandalwood-like spiciness. Very good length with noticable spice and pleasant currant-like acidity. Serve with roasted red meat, grilled sausages or tomato based pasta dishes.
