Elyse cabernetsauvignon tietjen

Cabernet Sauvignon, Tietjen Vineyard 2009

Elyse Winery

The 2009 Tietjen Cabernet Sauvignon is darkly colored with brilliant clarity. Fruit and oak are seamlessly integrated in this complex and balanced Cabernet. Smokey aromas of cassis, black cherries, leather, and cedar greet you upon entry. Once on the palate, the wine displays flavors of ripe cherries, cocoa, espresso, mint and warm spices. The tannins are well resolved and the wine finishes with a broad, satisfying mellowness. This full-bodied wine has great aromatics, a seamless entry, a long finish, and a harmonious balance of all its nuanced components.
