Duckhorn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA 2016
"Over the past four decades, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has solidified its position as one of the world's most important categories in the wine world. This feeling isn't a slight to Bordeaux, Burgundy, Tuscany, Piedmont and other highly visible regions and their ultra-premium wines. I am just saying this because so many consumers love the Napa Valley and can understand it easier than many wine growing areas. The 2015 Duckhorn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent effort. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with loads of black fruit, some oak, and even some boysenberries in its aromas and flavors. Its layered, satisfying, and crisp palate makes it a natural choice with a standing rib roast. (Tasted: May 11, 2018, San Francisco, CA)"
