Ilaria Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2017 Ilaria Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with aromas of ripe black cherries, currant liqueur and blackberry pie. Gorgeous layers of licorice, chocolate, volcanic rock, cedar and subtle toasty French oak graciously unfold in the glass. This lush full-bodied Cabernet offers an endearing texture and heady long-lasting finish.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot aged 22 months in 75% new French oak. Deep purple-black in color, it gives up expressive notes of baked blackcurrants, blackberry pie and spice cake with hints of licorice, tobacco and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has a solid backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and background freshness, finishing on a compelling black tea note. 560 cases made.
