Napa Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


Napa Cellars has been making wine for more than 40 years. Their winery sits on the original five acres that established Napa Cellars winery in 1976 along historic Highway 29 in Oakville. They still welcome guests to their tasting room in the geodesic dome commissioned by founder Charlie Woods. Napa Valley is the first agricultural preserve in America. The valley is just 30 miles long and a few miles wide. Ideally suited to grow a variety of wine grapes thanks to millennia-old volcanic and marine soils and a Mediterranean climate. This 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts aromas of blackberry, cassis, fig, and mocha. On the palate, dark fruit and earthy tobacco notes are threaded with spicy clove, mocha, and vanilla. The finish is polished with a full mouthfeel, plush tannins, and a nice persistent acidity. The wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels (29% new) for 19 months.
