Matthew Wallace Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Napa Valley, California

As the 6th generation farmer of his family’s Napa Valley Wallace Ranch, Matt Hardin has a natural appreciation of the exceptional place that is the Napa Valley. To this day, the Wallace Ranch has been continually farmed to wine grapes and cattle for over 150 years. The fruit for Matthew Wallace wine is sourced from an optimal section of the ranch situated on an alluvial fan, and creates extraordinarily rich Cabernet Sauvignon with a definitive yet supple tannin structure. The 2017 Matthew Wallace Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an impressive example of a classic Napa Valley Cabernet, capturing aromas of Bing cherry and a hint of sweet strawberry, mingled with tobacco and dark chocolate. Concentrated, it reflects perfect levels of ripeness with a well-rounded mouthfeel that makes this wine immediately approachable. A great introduction to the Matthew Wallace Wines portfolio. – Julien Fayard, Winemaker
