"Mocha, espresso, plums and raspberries float from the glass as the 2009 Proprietary Red Cappella conquers the palate and intellect. A sexy, radiant wine, the 2009 Cappella is bright, focused and exceptionally polished. Floral notes intermingled with hints of sweet tobacco, sage and mocha appear on the finish, adding considerable lift and finesse. Ideally the 2009 needs time in bottle, but it is incredibly appealing even today. I wouldn't suggest opening the Abreu 2009s anytime soon, but if I were going to open one, it would be the Cappella."

"The 2009 Cappella, which is nearly three-fourths Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and a tiny quantity of Merlot, possesses an inky/purple color and sweet notes of incense, violets, espresso beans, white chocolate and lots of creme de cassis and blackberries. There is plenty of glycerin, but unlike a lot of 2009s, despite relatively elevated tannins, the wine is open, showy and exuberant, which I consider to be a positive. Production was tiny, with only 250 cases produced. The 2009 should continue to drink well for 20-25 years."- Robert Parker. Jr.
