This fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignon shows off Long Meadow Ranch's terroir. The nose offers concentrated dark red fruits, black tea smokiness, sweet cedar bark, and black pepper. The full, pleasing entry introduces plush, soft tannins that persist to the finish. Seamless and sweetly extracted, this wine reveals layers of flavors in the
progression on the palate. Its youthful style allows it to open beautifully, whether in your glass or over time in your cellar.
"An extraordinary Cabernet that stands out even in this great vintage, and among its Rutherford peers. Quite dry and tannic in youth, it shows an astringency that strongly suggests the cellar. Underneath are powerhouse flavors of blackberries, black and red cherries, spices, tea and cedar. Really defines balance and elegance in a Napa Cabernet. Decant if you drink it now, but it should develop for years to come."
