Davis Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
In the glass, you are immediately struck by the depth of color in the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, suggesting a wine of great character and complexity. Perfumed, varietally classic aromas of blackberries, cassis, and graphite are finely framed by nuances of oak. Each taste reveals facets of black currant, blueberry and warm spices that mingle with tobacco, leather and cocoa. The bold round flavors and supple tannins create a wine that makes you eagerly anticipate the next sip as you savor the last.

Polished and direct, with plum and cherry sauce flavors gliding through, backed by tobacco and roasted alder notes. Picks up a smoldering bay edge on the finish, along with some tarry grip. Best from 2021 through 2028. 745 cases made.
