Band of Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Napa Valley, California

Band of Vintners is the outcome of seven wine industry friends who regularly get together to taste wine and talk shop. The collective ‘insider’ knowledge of where the best fruit can be sourced, where the deals can be found, and where favors can be called in when needed, was contagious. “The outcome, is a wine we believe makes a strong case for one of the best QPRs in the Napa Valley, and something we’re proud to share with our friends, family, and neighbors.” The 2017 vintage is one of great complexity and finesse. Intense cassis and blackberry aromas make for an intriguing and elegant nose. This wine is fresh and balanced ono the palate, with a very fine and spicy texture. It is layered with black pepper and blue fruit. 2017 vintage – 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc. 15 months in French oak.
