Clos Pegase Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$44.99

A classic Napa Valley Cabernet from Clos Pegase. 91 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon from Clos Pegase is an attractive effort with some gamey black and blue fruits, spice, lavender, and melted licorice in its rich, full-bodied, flamboyant style. It's a big, rich, mouthful of a wine that has loads to love." Winemaker is Robin Akhurst, assistant to the 20-time 100-pointer Thomas Rivers Brown, who helped craft perfect vintages of Schrader, Maybach and Carter.  Once in the glass, the 2016 Clos Pegase Napa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon reflects an opaque dark purple core. As the aromatics waft towards the nose, they deliver generous layers of cassis, antique wood, cigar box and black currant. On the palate, brooding dark fruits give way to briar, black currant and forest floor. More subtle notes of graphite, wet clay and seasoned leather, transition across the palate. The tannins are nicely balance by the lush fruits which are in-turn kept fresh by the crisp acidity. This 2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon continues to evolve on the palate showing depth and complexity with a lengthy finish.

For the price ($36 at Total Wine) this is a great value. Punching way above its weight. Highly recommend for everyday / occasional Napa cab when you don’t want to open something more $$$$.
