2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley, California

The Region

Napa Valley put California wines on the world stage and continues to be one of the most prized appellations for Cabernet Sauvignon among collectors and critics alike. Flanked by steep mountain ranges, the small valley is home to more than 400 wineries and includes 16 diverse sub-AVAs.

Intense Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon supplies the backbone in this gorgeous blend, while a touch of Merlot adds velvety texture, Petite Sirah intense color, and Petit Verdot violet aromatics and a lively acidity in the glass.
