Stephen Vincent Cabernet, Sauvignon 2018, Napa Valley, California

This Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 7% Petite Verdot with grapes sourced from Oak Knoll, Rutherford, and Yountville sub-appellations. Classic Cabernet Sauvignon notes with aromas of blackberry liquor, boysenberry, and anise with hints of pipe tobacco and exotic spices and a slight suggestion of spearmint. Flavors of the darkest fruits such as ultra ripe raspberry, black currant, dried black cherry, and blood plum with oak-derived notes of caramel, toasted coconut, and briarwood. Tight tannins create texture while a delicate thread of acidity maintains flavors well into the finish.
