Cervantes Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2017
96 Points Jeb Dunnuck
Every bit as good as the 2016, if not better, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a stunning nose of crème de cassis, crushed flowers, violet, garrigue, and even a touch of orange blossom. It’s complex aromatically, with the herbal, exotic note that’s always present in this cuvée, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful balance, and ripe tannins, all making for a captivating, incredibly satisfying Napa Cabernet that’s going to drink nicely for 15-20 years. Drink: 2020-2040.
