Textbook (Jonathan & Susan Pey) Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

$30.99

Textbook is a small-produciton Cabernet discovery from the heart of Napa Valley's Oak Knoll District, sourced from a vineyard next to Dominus!  Beautiful Cab for a reasonable price - try it while its still available. A fantastic value. The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon comes from two single vineyard sites located within the Oak Knoll and Yountville AVA's.  These ideal environments yield Cabernet Sauvignon with more structure and less flash than their warmer region brethren, and with a decidedly Bordelaise sensibility, witness some neighboring wines from Dominus and Grgich Cellars.  In addition to the Cabernet, a touch of Cabernet Franc adds great acid structure while the Merlot and Petit Verdot contributed to aromatics leading to a classic "Bordeaux" flavor profile.  We believe it is a "textbook" example of this noble variety grown in these outstanding appellations and that it can be enjoyed for several years to come.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim. Full bodied, smooth and bold. Dry and fruity on the palate with medium acidity. Showing black fruits, chocolate notes, vanilla, tobacco, cedar, licorice, cola and mocha. Nice finish with fine grained tannins. This is a tasty Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Fruit forward with a simple nose and mild complexity on the palate, with a nice soft mouthfeel. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some structure. Would benefit from another 3 to 5 years of bottle time. Good price for a Napa Cabernet. Aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. Low alcohol for a Napa Cabernet, which is not something you find too often. A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot. 13.3% alcohol by volume. Wow. 90 points. $30.

Nice feat of dark berries, stone fruit and vanilla. Drinks very smoothly that is slightly fruit forward, with ripe flavors amoretto cherries, strawberry, vanilla and oak. Very smooth finish and light on the palate while maintaining a great fruit finish.
