Capture Revelation Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 / 750 ml.

Item#: 67865

WE9595 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2012
The winemakers call this their Pauillac-style wine, meaning that its character is marked by Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a brilliant wine, vastly deep, imposing and elegant, with a potent mountain flavor of black currant. The estate vineyard is very high in the Mayacamas Mountains, and you can sense the small size of the berries in the wines intensity, the sheer concentration, as well as the tannins — which are hard and tight. Clearly this is a wine that requires time in the cellar. Try in 2018, but it could worth aging well beyond that.

Red-ruby. Currant, graphite, minerals, leather and tobacco leaf on the nuanced nose. Nicely ripe and intense, with a supple texture and a subtle sweetness to the redcurrant, tobacco, espresso and licorice flavors. I like the combination of depth and juiciness here. Finishes with serious ripe tannins and lovely chocolatey persistence. Attractive already owing to its complexity but has the stuffing and balance for a graceful evolution in bottle.

Predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon (84 percent), this is a denser, more powerful wine than Captûre’s Harmonie (recommended here, among the blends). The fruit tannins combine the new French oak to dry the finish and narrow the range of flavor. It’s a rich wine that needs long aging for those tannins to mellow and allow the fruit to come forward.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Revelation possesses quite a bit of depth as well as energy. Blackberries, graphite, camphor, leather and licorice are some of the notes that flow from this Cabernet. The mountain tannins are quite present on the finish. The Revelation is attractive but far from compelling. The 2009 is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot plus a dollop of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2019.

Where It's From

District / Sonoma County

View more wines from Sonoma County

Sonoma County, just north of San Francisco is one of California's most famous wine districts. While sometimes overshadowed by the reputation of its rival and neighbor, Napa Valley, Sonoma County has a longer history of viticulture and is twice the size of the former.

Thanks in part to a strong diversity of climates within Sonoma County, the district is home to outstanding examples from a whole host of grapes. Sonoma County Pinot Noirs are considered some of the finest in the state, and the Dry Creek Valley Zinfandels are remarkable. Chardonnays come in a variety of styles thanks to the varying temperatures in Sonoma County, and Cabernets and Merlots also thrive here.

Some of the more celebrated viticultural areas in Sonoma County include Sonoma Mountain, Sonoma Coast, Chalk Hill, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Carneros (parts of which fall within Napa Valley).

Region / California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

Pale yellow. Pungent, sexy aromas of lemon, nectarine, white grapefruit, crushed mint, anise and spring flowers. Supple, juicy and penetrating, with a musky complexity to the citrus zest and ripe grapefruit flavors. Conveys a tactile impression of extract without weight. Vibrant and well-delineated sauvignon with excellent balancing acidity. The brisk, persistent, palate-dusting finish shows a refreshing touch of bitterness. This is excellent.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2011
Intense, vibrant and focused, with a mouthwatering acidity to compliment the Meyer lemon, passion fruit, Asian pear and sweet pea notes. Builds intensity on the long, juicy finish. Drink now. 663 cases made.

The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc Les Pionniers is a bit richer, deeper and stonier than the Tradition. It shows quite a bit of depth in its fruit, along with persistent layers of minerality that provide an interesting counterpoint. White peaches, almonds, flowers and mint are woven into the layered, expressive finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2014.
WE8686 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 8/1/2011
Tastes sweeter and fruitier than the 2009, which was dry, so if you like orange marmalade, pineapple tart and vanilla cookie sugariness in your Sauvignon Blancs, it’s for you.
