2016 RouteStock Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

About the Wine

Already considered one of the finest vintages EVER in Napa Valley, this a fantastic value wine that is pure Cabernet. 

Aging: Aged in 85% French oak and 15% American oak for a total of 18 months. 20% of the barrels were new.

Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec

Tasting Notes: The aromas of this wine are very classic Napa Valley, seducing you with notes of dark black fruit, cedar, bay laurel, cocoa and dusty plum. The pallet is expansive throughout with mouth-watering flavors of black plum, mushroom, chocolate, savory hints of bay leaf and fine sweet Napa Valley fruit. The wine fills the mouth with richness, fruit, a bright acidity and just enough natural grape and oak tannin to lengthen the wine into a great lingering aftertaste. The use of four Bordeaux varietals adds to the complexity, depth and interest of this finely crafted Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
