Goldschmidt Hilary Goldschmidt Charming Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
The fresh bright red hue with purple edges leads into aromas of black cherry with hints of raspberry and black plum. The mouth opens with delicious vanilla and mocha merged with the same cherry and plum found on the nose. Enticing traces of graphite and a mineral essence build down the length of the mouth, joining pomegranate and more vanilla in the finish.
This has ripe and smoky character with lots of dark and blue-fruit aromas, together with hints of spices and dark chocolate. Full body and a firm tannin structure. Has hints of blueberry jam on the palate, yet it’s fresh and juicy. Long, chocolatey finish. Drink or hold.
Stylish, with a flash of menthol giving way to streamlined cassis and cherry paste flavors wrapped in notes of red licorice, while hints of mesquite line the finish. Approachable now too. Drink now through 2028. 2,750 cases made.
