The problem here is that there’s a growing number of smaller wineries who are placing great emphasis on the land (that goes way beyond the marketing hype on the back label of their bottles), and so the differences are becoming more and more apparent with every vintage in Napa.
A fruit bomb this ain’t! At the same time, I wouldn’t really call it restrained. An intense mouthful of plum, mocha, and wild blackberries upfront, turning towards tea, dried herbs, clove and red cherries on the backend.
If you’re looking to elevate your experience with Napa Cabs, you need to get with the program and start thinking smaller (i.e. smaller vineyards)! 10 years in the cellar should be no problem at all here.
Pair it with a big name wine from “The Valley” and see how you get on…I promise you won’t be disappointed.
