A vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon still has traces of tannin, but that’s phasing out as raspberry takes over the flavor profile. Dark red color, touches of black cherry and a hint of leather in the aroma. Six Napa Valley appellations provide grapes, with Cab (82%) and Merlot (12%) heading the blend from an elegant little winery, surrounded by one of the last extant stands of Napa redwood.
