Our score: 94
A very bold, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa with a special elegance and finesse, coming from the well-balanced acidity and minerality. It is consistent in the glass, dark ruby with some purple hues. At the nose it is intense and complex, starting with dark berries, dried figs and plums, candied violets, red bell peppers, wet forest floor, clay, eucalyptus, vanilla beans and nutmeg.
On the palate it is long, intense and crisp, with very well integrated and elegant tannins and an exuberant sapidity, balancing marvelously the fruity and warm finish.
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Pairing: It’s a full meal wine, preferable with important meats like ribeye or T-bone steak, rack of lamb, or dry and aged cheeses. Very good also with an eggplant parmigiana with tomato sauce.
Appellation: St Helena Napa Valley AVA, USA
