Addax "Tench" Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville 2017
96 Points Jeb Dunnuck
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard is a great expression of this site. Dense purple-hued with tons of cassis, red plums, new saddle leather, and dark chocolate, as well as a touch of cedary herbs, this beauty is packed with fruit, has a full-bodied, layered, rounded texture, beautiful mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It shows the vintage’s more straight profile on the palate, but packs way more fruit and depth than most. It’s a beautiful wine that’s going to evolve for 20 years or more.
