2017 St. Helena Mountain Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
St. Helena Mountain Napa Valley
The 2017 St. Helena Mountain Family Reserve…so here are the notes from 2018: One of the most intense wines in our collection, the St. Helena Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon always delivers. Ripe expressions of California Cabernet: blackberry, plumb, cassis, licorice, and concentrated blueberry. Highlights of graphite and stone, chocolate and spice, all make this wine endlessly complex. The mouthfeel is rich and flows broadly across the palate with exceptionally juicy and fine tannins. We really think this is a great description of how the wine is year in and year out. We do have vintage notes in general, but how should we handle this? I think it is the way to go with compiling these notes for all our wines and only really changing notes if there is a distinctive reason.
