Duckhorn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Winemaker Notes :
This terroir-driven wine shows an intense array of wild blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry jam and dark chocolate aromas, as well as hints of wet slate, graham cracker and cardamom. On the palate, classic notes of dusty Rutherford minerality and beautifully balanced French oak frame both red and dark berry flavors, with notes of graphite, cracked pepper, caramel and black tea adding depth to a long, fruit-filled finish.
Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 0.8% Cabernet Franc, 0.2% Petit Verdot
This is streamlined in feel despite the obvious power here, thanks to a bright mineral and sanguine spine that courses underneath the mix of plum, cassis and cherry reduction flavors. Roasted applewood note through the finish adds energy. Rock solid. Drink now through 2031. 53,290 cases made.
