2020 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet Sauvignon opens with dark blue and black fruit on the nose with aromas of blackberry cobbler, plum, and black currants, followed by warm aromatics of fresh tobacco, tamarind, hints of vanilla, and caramelized black fruit. On the palate, this Cabernet is silky and lively, with medium-to-full bodied texture and weight, and flavors of raspberry, black cherry, black plum, and soft red and black stone fruit. Rich tannin, texture, and weight lead to an inviting mouthfeel. The finish is mouthwatering and lengthy with cherry and hints of dark, powdery cocoa, which is classic with Rutherford-based wines.
The 2020 vintage began with moderate winter rainfall and a warm and dry spring. Bud break began in late March, leading to a Spring that had few showers. Summer was temperate and steady, with heat spikes that pushed the vintage and set the stage for an excellent season consisting of small berries and great concentration. Once headed into early Fall, harvest was upon us rapidly. We moved swiftly to bring in only the premium quality of grapes to process, and we finished the season quickly.
