2017 Cultivar Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
|2017 Vintage Notes||
The 2017 grape season will be noted for two events: the rainfall and the fires. Significant rainfall throughout the state ended several years of drought and provided the grapevines the water they needed. Then California wildfires broke out near the end of harvest, most of the grapes of Napa and Sonoma had been harvested. The late summer heat spike allowed for fantastic maturity and great flavors to develop. All of this will lead to small quantities of wines that should be outstanding.
|2017 Cultivar Napa Valley
Our 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is dark black purple and has intense brilliance in the glass. Aromas of blackcurrant, plum, black cherries and sweet vanilla with just the right amount of spice and floral notes completely draw you into the glass. On the palate this wine is extremely rich, opulent and loaded with the dark fruits your nose captured when you first poured the wine. It is velvety and long on the finish, the tannins are perfectly balanced with all the wonderful fruit. While tempting to drink tonight this wine will age 5-10 years with no problem. Pair with your favorite cut of prime beef!
