Guarachi Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Polished currant, fig and blackberry fruit flavors meld with light loam, tobacco and menthol accents, all framed by singed alder details on the finish. A textbook Napa Cabernet that is approachable now but will gain some additional nuance with cellaring. Drink now through 2027. 500 cases made.
Shy on the nose at first, this well-made full-bodied red opens slowly to unfurl brawny layers of tannin and smoky oak. The power is met by densely packed flavors of black cherry and currant, with a hint of sage and dried herb.
