Smith Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2016
There is a freshness to this wine that is appealing and instantly draws you in. This is a prime example of what a mountain cab should be with its terroir-driven style that screams Smith-Madrone. A blend of 86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 7.5% Cabernet Franc, the wine is aromatic, structured and complex. The purity of fruit comes through in the aromatics, with notes of black currant, dried cherries, cocoa, dried herbs and spice. The palate is balanced and complex with layers of dark fruit and spice.
