2021 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: The 2021 vintage unites luscious fruit with luxurious textures. Earthy notes of dried herbs and forest floor open into layers of sweet cherry, blackberry, and mocha on the palate. Soft, graphite-infused tannins provide graceful support for the curvaceous fruit core, and guide the wine through levels of chocolate, vanilla, red fruit and berry bramble on its way to a long, raspberry-caramel finish.
Aging: 20 months in French oak (50% new; Berger, Taransaud, Demptos)
Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot
