Cakebread Cellars, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California, USA, 2011
87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc
The complex nose of fig confit, ripe black cherry, currant and dried pepper leaves also has a slight eucalyptus character. The smooth, silky palate is full of rustic bell pepper notes, savoury herbs, bitter chocolate, nuts and a hint of truffle. Prominent tannins, long finish.
