IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS
99 Points Jeb Dunnuck
California’s prestigious Napa Valley needs no introduction. This beautiful and exclusive viticultural area has proven itself, vintage after vintage, to produce some of the world’s most sought-after wines characterized by their intense flavors, developed structures, and aging potential.
A great example of the region and vintage, our Owl Ridge 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon boasts earthy aromas of black cherry, cigar box, and nutmeg.
On the palate, the wine’s impressive structure is framed by unabashedly big fruit flavors of blueberry and plum, offset by complex, deeper notes of cedar, coffee and pencil lead. The full mid-palate transitions seamlessly into a long, interwoven finish of fig, tobacco and a subtle hint of oaky, sweet vanilla. We recommend pairing with grilled eggplants, heaty blue cheeseburgers or beef, and ginger stir fry. Drinking great now, this intense but balanced cab will also age for up to ten years.
