Stack House Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Winemaker Notes :
The Stack House Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with aromas of blackcurrants, black cherries and black berries followed by layers of crushed rock, whitechocolate, sweet spices and toasty oak on the expressive nose. The wine generously coats the palate with a round supple mouthfeel and is framed by graceful silky tannins. The wine dances on the palate showcasing an impressive and lasting finish.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley comes mainly from declassified mountain fruit. It is made up of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, aged 20 months in 85% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it features bombastic notes of black cherries, crème de cassis and warm plums with touches of cedar chest, pencil lead, menthol and forest floor. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, it has bold freshness and tons of black fruit layers, finishing on a spicy note. 5,000 cases made.
