2020 Salvestrin Winery Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA (750ml)
The 2020 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon features a vibrant mélange of black cherry, black currants, cedar, and dried violets. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a distinct silkiness throughout, plus a touch of minerality that adds freshness and depth. There’s a sense of grace and liveliness to this wine. The finish is laser focused with refined length and whispers hints of dark chocolate and blackberry.
Blend: 79% Cabernet, 9% Petite Verdot, 8% Malbec and 4% Merlot
Pure and fresh nose with a hint of stones and oatmeal to the lemon curd and green apples. Nicely saline on the medium-bodied palate with some grapefruit skins and white almonds in the finish. Drink now.

Salvestrin's 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley comes largely from the winery's Crystal Springs Vineyard. A blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec and 4% Merlot, it was picked between September 12 and September 21. Scents of ripe cherries, restrained cedar, mocha shadings and bright raspberries appear on the nose, while the palate is medium to full-bodied, framed by gently dusty tannins and finishing tart and refreshing.
