Sequoia Grove Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

$39

A classic, powerful Cabernet fom Napa Valley's famed Rutherford Bench! Seqouia Grove is one of those great small family-run wineries in the prime Cabernet area of Napa Valley that has managed to remain under the radar. One of the best Cabs we've tasted in this price range, its full of the big tannins and a healthy dose of American Oak that Silver Oak fans love. The grapes come from well-regarded vineyards in the Napa Valley and Seqouia Grove's own estate vineyards in Rutherford. 93 Points Wine Spectator: "Rich, smoky oak and plump dark berry, mocha, cedar and sage flavors form an enticing mouthful, supported by a supple, caressing texture, ending long and full. Drink now through 2030."

Very inviting nose of toasted oak and hints of mint. Palate is mineral-driven. Palate is fresh and clean, with tobacco, sage and mint. Finishes with caramel and soil. Excellent example - from magnum.

Consistently great. Not saying it’s in the same echelon, but the flavors remind me of Schrader To Kalon.

I’ve always had a sweet spot for this producer. When I saw the WS rating, I had to try it. It’s my sort of Napa cab, without the nosebleed at the checkout. Rich, plush nose of coffee and maple syrup. Presents with depth and texture on the palate. Tannins are ripe, indicating longevity. I’m going back to the well!

Nice to come back to this after a bit! Definitely more balanced than I even remember. Earthy and full and drank well with the aerator and then opened over the next week.

Just as good as always! Deep and earthy Rutherford flavor. Only gets better aged. Need to stock up a bit on this next club period.

Muted fruits, never really opened up even after a day. underwhelming for WS top 100. Shrimp and scallop mushroom risotto.

Rich and chewy. Exhibits lush blackberry, mocha, toasty oak, and tobacco leaf. A big wine, not extracted but really pushing the limit that way. Nice and well rounded choice, if not alluring. A WS Top 100.

Solid, easy to drink cab. Some cigar box on the finish.
