2016 MAROON RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
NAPA VALLEY COOMBSVILLE AVA ESTATE
It is a little cooler in the southern end of Napa Valley, and we benefit from this by being able to ripen the grapes slowly and evenly. Aromas of rich, fruity dark berries, honeycomb, vanilla and a hint of forest floor join together with bold flavors of black cherry, spiced nuts and marinated oranges. It was aged in 60% new French oak barrels for 30 months, which adds balanced oak to the profile. The tannins give structure to the layered palette, leaving a lingering finish. Drink now and decant a few hours to let the wine open or cellar it for 5-7 more years for greater complexity.
