The 2017 La Sirena Cab is very dark blackberry in color, with the ripe, layered aromatics of Cab Sauv and a lifted note from the addition of Cab Franc. Across the palate the wine is vibrant, balanced, and explosive with flavor. Soft and silky in texture, yet has a powerful structure and expression of fruit. Flavors are black fruit-driven with dark cherry and berry notes dominating, layered with sweet toasty French oak as a complement. Ageworthy yet approachable as of this tasting. Tannins are pretty mild in this vintage, not needing much time in the bottle at all. A great example of classic Napa Cab - purely delicious!
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon offers terrific depth, with the energy and mid-weight structure that is typical of many wines in this vintage. The contours are a bit angular at this stage, so a year or two in bottle is recommended. This is very nicely done.
