2016 St. Helena Mountain Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
St. Helena Mountain Napa Valley
Our St. Helena Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon grows nestled into the lower hillside of the Mayacamas Mountain range in Northwestern Napa. This wine is an absolute powerhouse with layers of complexity to balance the firm tannin structure. Aromatics of candlewood spices are rounded out by a rich caramel butterscotch characteristic, and offering black currants and pie crust. The flavors are bold and intense. Dark chocolate compliments the plum and black cherry fruits. The mouthfeel is supreme and the finish seems everlasting. This top flight Cabernet can be described as the iron fist in the velvet glove and should drink incredibly well for the next 25 years.
