The 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon brims with black currant, violets, plum and black cherries with threads of honey, pipe tobacco, cedar, cloves and vanilla. This wine’s lush core of bright blackberry, toffee, dark cherry, cocoa, hazelnut and caramel complement its luscious full body. The finish is polished with well-rounded, fine-grained tannins and fresh, balanced acidity making this Cabernet the perfect pairing for port-braised beef short ribs topped with mint leaves.
