The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a bold brick-red color and a rich viscosity that is evident once poured into a glass. A fresh and delightful aroma is extremely noticeable when first poured, demonstrating graphite, leathery cherry, and minty fig paste. Wow! On the palate a hint of white pepper is shown initially, followed by compatible notes of quince, toasty oak, and minerally lava rock. A full-bodied Cabernet, this can certainly stand up to many of the Napa greats because of its power but also elegance and unique variety of flavor profiles. Really a treat, this is enjoyable for its high concentration, without seeming over-manipulated, and will have some age-worthiness for years to come. Feel free to pair with a local blue cheese like Point Reyes blue and of course couple with something like Rutherford Grill’s famous Baby Back Ribs. Drink now through 2034. Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Cauvignon.
