The dark ruby-hued Mettler 2011 Cabernet opens with delicate aromas of black cherry and cedar with some nice earthiness and a hint of black pepper. Smooth and medium-bodied on the palate with delicious flavors of dark chocolate, cherry and ripe black currants with a hint of light toasty vanilla carried through on soft-edged tannins. This wine exhibits a beautifully orchestrated balance of fruit, oak and tannin with a nice thread of acidity that sails through to the lingering finish. An elegant and poised Cabernet that is accessible now, but with a solid core of flavors and complexity to see it through many years of aging.

Wine EnthusiastThis full-bodied wine gets attention right away with a deep, dark color. It follows up with assertive aromas and flavors of charred oak barrels and maple syrup, which gives an impression of sweetness. Blended with 12% Petite Sirah and 3% Cabernet Franc, it has ample fruit elements, but the lavish oak character dominates.
