|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine & Spirits
"A savory Napa Valley cabernet grows on Pritchard Hill, where Donn Chappellet settled in 1967. These volcanic hills east of St. Helena provided Phillip Corallo Titus with the raw material for a refined and lilting 2016. He didn't overextract the wine, so the tannic detail lasts with umami notes of freshly dug earth, black mushrooms and blueberry skins. The fruit is integrated, with dark blueberry density and brighter purple notes feeling refined, so that the pretty side of cabernet is on view-a rarity among the muscle cabs of Napa Valley." A classic expression of hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this luxurious wine displays concentrated aromas of ripe black cherry, cassis and dark chocolate, along with oak-inspired notes of espresso, cinnamon, clove and cigar box. On the supple, mouth-filling palate, elegantly refined tannins underscore the rich dark berry and blackcurrant flavors, with hints of nutmeg, anise and cedar adding sophistication to the long, voluptuous finish. ~winery notes
The larger production cuvée is the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature, which checks in as 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 % Petit Verdot, and the balance Malbec. This cuvée is normally relatively easy to find in the market and it's always a good value. The 2017 doesn't break that trend, offering up loads of black and blue fruits intermixed with lots of mountain scrub brush, crushed rocks, cedary herbs, and earth. It's medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, has considerable elegance, and a great finish.
Adult Signature is required for every shipment.
