Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Open and accessible, with a dollop of warm ganache laid over a core of warm plum and blackberry preserve flavors. Shows just enough juicy energy to offset the toothy, extracted edge on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 20,000 cases made.
The Tasting Panel
Named for a north-to-south throughway that traverses Napa Valley, this blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cab Franc with small portions of Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Merlot exudes aromas of mint, cedar, and ripe blackberry. The nose mimics the palate, which sees the addition of a dusting of chocolate as well as violets and savory Italian herbs.
