2009 Match Vineyards Butterdragon Cabernet
Some months back we tasted and sold the 2007 vintage of the Match, Butterdragon Hill Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. We liked it and more importantly we have received a great deal of positive feed- back for having recommended that wine. A few days ago we received a sample of the 2009 Match Butterdragon Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. We had opportunity to open it last night. Had there been a second bottle on hand I would have opened it too. This 2009 vintage pours deep purple in color with just a hint of brick or cherry color on the edge of the hue. The nose is brambly berry mixed with violets and spice. The flavor profile is one of rich dark plum flavors finishing with slightly smoky blueberry . Finally, the tannin layer is rich and supple making this Cab the definition of velvety and luxurious from the moment it is poured. The 2009 Match Butterdragonn Napa Cab is normally $65-$69. There is a push on this wine. We can offer it at $44.50 per bottle matching the lowest price in the country. We can offer an additional 10% discount on orders of 6 bottles or more ($40.05 on sixes or more), 52 bottles available
This Cab is in it drinking cycle and should show well for a minimum of 7 years. ( 91- 93 points Cellar Tracker ) Click here for full review.
