This beautifully blended 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is exquisitely balanced with excellent fruit concentration. On the nose, this wine offers fresh blackberries, black cherries, blueberry pie, graphite, toasted brioche, and a touch of lavender. The palate offers plush but concentrated tannins, mixed berry jam, dried black cherries, dark chocolate, toasted walnuts, cedar, and a touch of vanilla bean with a finish that softens and lingers. This offering is enjoyable today but will also evolve with cellar aging through 2030.

Blackcurrants, graphite, hints of damp flowers, and dark chocolate all emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley. It's a medium-bodied, elegant 2017 that comes up short on depth and richness yet is balanced, with ripe tannins, and has lots to enjoy. I suspect it's best enjoyed over the coming 7-8 years, but it will keep longer.
