Duckhorn Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (750ml)
2016 vintage "A classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet, this wine combines beautiful complexity with rich intensity. Layers of blackberry, huckleberry and black currants are supported by firm, dusty tannins that frame the fruit. On the palate, it is juicy and bright, with luxurious cassis and dark berry flavors supported by notes of fig, cardamom, clove and cracked black pepper that linger on the long, well-structured finish. Varietal Content: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc; Cooperage: 100% French oak château style 60 gallon barrels."
"We have been producing Cabernet Sauvignon since 1978. Blending fruit from estate vineyards and top Napa Valley growers, this wine embodies the complexity of the valley, while offering a seamless balance between fruit, oak and tannins. To add nuance, the Cabernet is blended with Merlot, yielding a wine that is approachable in its youth, yet worthy of cellaring." - Winemaker
