This Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies the elegant success that resulted from the cooler 2011 vintage. Black currant, cherry and blueberry aromatics remain distinctly bright in this inviting wine. The palate offers a layered complexity of forest floor, savory herbs, and sweet tobacco that seamlessly blends with the vibrant red fruit. Persistent tannins frame a round, full structure and soft, fresh finish.
When we first opened this bottle, it took us by surprise! It needed to breathe for awhile, but once it did, it was fantastic. More dry than most Cabs I've had.
Had this wine at Limani in New York. Delicious Cab
