Red Stitch 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, California
John Micek '01
This brooding and lush Napa Cabernet alights the eye with a dark red core that gently fades to scarlet at its edge. A hedonistic perfume of currant, black cherry, sandalwood, and forest earth rise from the glass. Ripe black cherries, dark chocolate covered raspberries, and an essence of Tahitian vanilla move elegantly across the palate in a well-balanced dance. Rich, round tannins accompany a lingering finish that allows for youthful consumption while confirming its ability to cellar for years to come.
