Aiken 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford)

Atypical of a Rutherford Cabernet, this is in fact unlike most of today's expensive Cabernets from anywhere in Napa Valley. It's aggressively tannic and dry, and it seems emulate an older style, though the alcohol is considerably higher than anything from the old days. With a core of blackberries and black currants, it may well develop bottle complexity over the years.
