OG N.02 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 12-bottle case
Opaque core with magenta/violet rim, this 2017 [redacted]-derived Cabernet Sauvignon leaps from the glass with an amalgam of chaparral, blackberry, black currant, rocky loam and graphite. Sappy, ripe black fruit mingles energetically with [redacted] classic dusty hillside tannins in a long finish echoing blackberry, licorice and tobacco. An archetype of the vintage (with no smoke taint), this sexy, ephemeral, hillside Cabernet front-lines for around $90/bottle at the winery. A steal at $15/bottle.
96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petite Verdot.
60% new French oak and 15.2% alc.
Bottled June 8th, 2020
