Addax Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|California, Napa Valley
Made by Russell Bevan, one of the most sought-after winemakers in California today, Addax is a small winery project led by Josh Peeples that began in 2009. This newly released is comprised of 100% Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Tench Vineyard is a 60-acre property with 42 acres of vine. It’s on a hill in the heart of east Oakville along Oakville Cross Road and neighbors Screaming Eagle to the north and Rudd and Harbison to the west. Tench Vineyard contains red soils of clay and volcanic rock which marries perfectly with their cabernet vines. It is one of the most sought-after vineyards for sourcing great Oakville fruit and for good reason.
Wine Advocate 94 Pts "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 7% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it leaps from the glass with crème de cassis and plum preserves notions, plus fragrant hints of baking spices and potpourri. The medium to full-bodied palate has beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins and a lively backbone, delivering a long, elegant finish."
