Sequoia Grove Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$46

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. 91 Points Robert Parker: "A barrel sample blended of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep purple-black in color and features open-knit notions of crushed blueberries, black cherries and red and black currants with suggestions of pencil shavings and tilled soil. Medium to full bodied, the palate gives a great concentration of earth-laced black fruits with a pleasantly chewy finish.

This was pretty unbelievable. It has so many things going on, yet the flavors never felt out of balance or harsh. Silly delicious, and after around ~15 minutes it seemed to mellow out and get smoother and sweeter, without losing flavor.
