2009 Vintage

2009 marked a return to normalcy -- if any year is normal in farming -- after a challenging and low production 2008. Mild temperatures and little rain throughout the spring and early summer had everything looking good and moving at a slow pace. It warmed up just-in-time for veraison and the clusters colored quickly and evenly. Continued mild weather throughout August and September gave the fruit plenty of time to get ripe. Baconbrook, always the first ready for harvest, came in on September 23rd. Butterdragon Hill continued its slow maturity into October until late season rains followed by cooler weather caused a more urgent ending to what had been a fairly mellow year. We harvested Butterdragon in two different picks on October 7th and October 21st.

2009 Baconbrook Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml) MV-750-09-BB

Still very young, this wine already offers a delicious blend of cherry and raspberry flavors with currant, milk chocolate, crushed tea leaves, and sweet oak. Bold, with an extremely long finish, its polished, sweet tannins and focused acidity promise even greater days ahead. We're incredibly proud of our 120 cases of 2009 Baconbrook.

2009 Butterdragon Hill Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml) MV-750-09-CS

I am immediately struck by the incredibly dark color hinting of the robust flavors to come. Lush fruit aromas jump from the glass. The wine has a full, sweet mouthfeel and flavors of crème de cassis, ripe juicy plums, and dark chocolate are complimented by black licorice and cedar. It’s big, but balanced. The 2009 reminds us immediately of our debut 2002 Butterdragon. Sure to be a crowd pleaser now, give it an hour in the decanter or a few years in the cellar to tame its youthfulness. We bottled 200 cases.
