2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Deep, maroon red in color. The aromas are of dark, ripe red berries, and on the palate, the wine has initial notes of raspberry and wild strawberry which evolve into generous currant flavors with hints of tropical notes. There is still a brambly quality of red berry and plum, but also strawberry guava, and damson plum. The rich layered flavors are met with fine-grained, velvety soft tannins and a hint of red earth and caramel, while maintaining the impression of fresh-picked ripe fruits on the finish.
