Matthiasson Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2016
2016 was a mild year, warm with an early start, but never too hot. The vintage gave the grapes an elegant Cabernet that is aromatic and complex. The nose shows abundant red fruits, lots of bright cherry along with bramble-berries, such as blackberry,cranberry, mulberry, and framed with hints of mineral/herbal characters such as graphite, cedar, and pencil shavings. The palate is vibrant and fresh, with light tannin and beautiful acidity.
