Y Rousseau 2009 Cavedale Vineyards Smokin' Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma Valley)

A rich, dry young Cabernet, with fresh blackberry, cherry and oak flavors, brightened by a burst of citrusy acidity. The tannins are strong, however, giving the wine a sandpapery astringency. Needs a few years, although it doesn't have the stuffing for the long haul. Your window is around 2014.
