The 2017 Vine Cliff Cabernet Sauvignon is a polished and elegant wine with a deep scarlet hue from the layers of rich fruit, complimented with aromatics of boysenberries, violets, and Tahitian vanilla extract. The silky tannins are balanced with the richness and purity of the fruit on the palate. Huckleberry, blackberry compote, hints of cinnamon and allspice leave a long lasting finish, and have you yearning for the next sip. This wine is drinking lovely now and will continue to mature for years to come.
"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is dense, plush and super-expressive. Black plum, espresso, chocolate, licorice and dark spice all open up in a mid-weight, beautifully persistent Cabernet that will drink well right out of the gate."

"Ripe and rich in feel, with dark plum and cassis fruit rolling through, flanked by warm cocoa and tobacco notes and scored by a flash of loam on the finish. Drink now through 2026."
