2016 Salvestrin Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Salvestrin Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon...$34.99
A dark-fruited nose with plums and blackberries, as well as black truffle and earthy notes. The palate has a supple and even thread of blueberry flavor and supple, layered tannins. A blend of 89 per cent cabernet sauvignon with some merlot, syrah and cabernet franc. Drink or hold.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling
Made up of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Syrah and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of cassis, earth, red and black cherries, sage and tobacco. The palate is medium to full-bodied and chewy with an herbal lift.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
