This wine boasts aromas of black cherry, blueberry compote and black plum with prominent secondary hints of cocoa nibs, baking spice and fresh eucalyptus. The palate showcases a beautiful balance between perfectly ripe red and black fruit and savory, complex layers of dark chocolate, roasted coffee and brown sugar. An incredibly enjoyable wine with rounded structure and firm tannins.
Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 3% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 3% Merlot. It has a very deep garnet-purple color and struts a flamboyant nose of crushed red and black cherries, blueberries and cassis with hints of roses, dusty soil, baking spices and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, it coats the mouth with vibrant black fruit, framed by ripe, grainy tannins and finishing long and expressive.
