A versatile food wine, the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with any red meat on the grill, pork tenderloin, heavy cheeses and grilled vegetables.
Ripe, sporting a fresh edge, with plum and black cherry notes cruising through, laced with cedar and alder hints and backed by a violet detail that adds good lift. Drink now through 2024. 18,987 cases made.
The entry-level Cabernet, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep purple-hued effort offering lots of upfront currant and blackberry fruits, notes of scorched earth and chocolate, medium to full body, good tannins, and plenty of classy Cabernet character. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years.
