2016 Napa Valley "Special Selections" Cabernet Sauvignon
With big, bold aromas, this Cabernet is not even a little bit shy. Black berry, dark Bing cherry and a hint of licorice notes lead the charge, with a touch of vanilla and a touch of ripe plum close behind. First sip is as smooth and luscious as you might expect. The sweet black fruit at the start is intertwined with complex layers of cassis, dark chocolate, blueberries and baking spice. The finish lingers with spice and sweet fruit, on a bed of supple tannins, which simply begs for another sip. This has everything we have come to know and love about Cabernet grown in the best viticultural areas of Napa Valley.
