On the palate, this Cabernet is rich with sweet, ripe tannins, expanding to a greater breadth of refined textures. The flavor profile includes dark chocolate, sweet tobacco, mocha, leather, brown spice, cedar, vanilla and sweet licorice. The stand out qualities of this wine are its balance, supple texture, approachable grip and earthy notes.
"A fleshy, showy youngster, putting ripe fruit and jazzy oak on display.
An impressive 2011 that reverberates with ripe cherry, plum
and currant notes that will be at their most appealing early on, as
this veers toward dryer tannins on the finish."
"Although tasty, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is slightly less intense and powerful compared to the 2010. It reveals supple tannins, abundant black fruit and spice notes, and an easy-drinking yet seriously endowed, medium to full-bodied personality. Drink it over the next decade."
