A classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet at its best: Remarkably rich and concentrated. Tantalizing entry — almost sweet with blackberry essence, it evolves into a plush, mouth filling compote of black fruit, beautifully integrated with woodsy and mineral notes, mocha, tobacco, and clove. For all its volume the delivery is surprisingly fresh and supple, with a long, mocha-infused finish.
Tasting Notes - The 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon conveys mouth-filling, profoundly extreme blackberry over the palate with clove and cardamom zest complexity and dusty tannins that add structure to the delicious totality of the fruit.
Blend - 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc
