Wine Tasting Notes
The aromas of this wine seduce you with notes of cedar, bay laurel, cocoa and deep plum. The palate is expansive throughout with mouthwatering flavors of black plum, coffee, chocolate and savory hints of mushroom and bay leaf. The wine fills the mouth with richness, fruit, a bright acidity and just enough tannin to lengthen the wine into a great lingering aftertaste. The use of all five Bordeaux varietals adds to the complexity, depth and interest of this finely crafted Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
I was looking for a wine with good tannin, rich though not overpowering, & complex enough to allow my palate to have some wonderment about what flavors were within. The mineral notes of Napa Valley are there, and you get that pretty good in this wine. (please note,it's just some areas of Napa that have a higher mineral content)
This is a really good wine. Not over not under. I just reordered another half case. I'm in a wine club in Sonoma, much pricier & wonderful. Route Stock...bravo....Let me know when you have a wine club.
Price point: WOW! Get it while you can.
