Davis Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Juicy, with a solid core of dark plum, fig and blackberry fruit flavors, laced with cocoa and roasted cedar notes. Fruit and cedar elements play out together on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,388 cases made.
Moving to the reds, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon includes a small splash of Cabernet Franc and Merlot and was brought up mostly in new barrels. It's a ripe, sexy, black-fruited effort that gives up lots of charcoal, blackcurrants, coffee bean, tobacco, and earth. It's fleshy and textured on the palate, yet has some firm underlying tannin. Enjoy this rich, concentrated, chewy Cabernet any time over the coming 10-12 years.
