Tasting Set Includes:
- Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon
A wine of great energy, length, and finesse, 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with floral notes, cedar and pencil shavings followed by ripe blackberry, cassis and red currant jam. Fresh and focused with pleasing acid and tannin structure building tension along the palate to the lingering finish.
- Duckhorn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Lush, energetic, and intense, this gorgeous Cabernet begins with aromas of blackberry, huckleberry, and chocolate, as well as hints of mint, cardamom, clove, and graham cracker. On the palate, it displays lovely brightness, with firm, resolved tannins framing flavors of boysenberry and black currant. As it evolves in the glass, subtle sweet and savory notes are revealed, carrying the wine to a long, focused finish.
- Chimney Rock Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep red with purple hues. Aromas of blackberry, cassis, mocha and hints of dried herbs exude from the bottle, as well as cardamom and a touch of mint. Rich and full-bodied, this wine has a dense mid-palate with a round and silky texture and a long finish.
