Bookster Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Bookster Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2009: Nearly opaque, with a black-violet hue.  Ripe Cabernet aromas reminiscent of blackberry jam, cola, and cassis are set off by a hint of eucalpytus and toasted bread.  Full-bodied, dry, and tannic, this is mouthpuckering on the intense finish.  The waxy black fruit flavors need time to integrate with the tannins and substantial alcohol, but this should come together with time in the cellar.  Drink 2013-2018.  14.8% alc.  $55  (90+)
