Grape(s): Cabernet Sauvignon
Localization: Napa Valley, California, USA
Tasting Notes: This classically rich Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is red burgundy in color with aromas of black cherry and creamy vanilla, followed by blueberry, blackberry, cherry cola, and grilled meat. On the palate, this Cabernet Sauvignon is seamless and elegant with silky tannins, intense flavors of cherry and floral notes, and a hint of burnt sugar and roasted nuts. Drink now or age 10 or more years.
The Domain: Sequoia Grove is located in the prime Rutherford District of the Napa Valley. Rutherford is renowned for producing some of America's finest quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The 24-acre estate is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Chardonnay vines. These choice vineyards yielded their first estate-bottled Chardonnay in 1980 and Cabernet Sauvignon in 1982. The Allen family's aim is to perserve the natural character and intensity of that extraordinary fruit from the vineyard. With choice grapes, expertise, and love of the craft, Sequoia Grove continues to live up to a notable reputation for premiere wine production.
