2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

This classically rich Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon bursts with aromas of mulberries, black cherry, mocha, vanilla, caramel, and fig. On the palate, this Cabernet Sauvignon delivers flavors of cinnamon, blackberry pie and dried cherry with dusty tannins, balanced acidity and a long flowing finish. This wine is built to age at least 10 years, but is also pleasing now.

Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

The 2017 vintage started with ground water coffers very full due to an exceptionally wet winter, giving us some relief to the years of drought. Fortunately, spring weather was mild and fruit set was solid though still lower than previous vintages due to the previous drier years. Summer contained a few heat events, followed by an impactful one over Labor Day weekend. Growers who had done their due diligence with correct row orientation, sufficient canopy shade, and good vine health were rewarded. All said, it is a vintage that highlights the skill of the winemaker and wine grower.
