Etude Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
A wonderful lushness defines the 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, which displays an impactful spectrum of blue and black fruit aromas typical of each unique sub-appellation. On the palate, warm blackberry, dark blueberry and plum are interwoven with cassis and toasted barrel spices. This Cabernet Sauvignon is satisfyingly evolved in its young years, but showcases a rich texture and velvety, long tannins telling of the wine's graceful aging potential.
