Cervantes 'MMXVII' Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (Napa Valley, CA)
Producer Notes: It is the fine focus that drives the character of the 2017 Cervantes Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has a dark black-purple hue, bright aromatics, and a generous yet precise palate impression. Immediately on the nose are notes of red raspberry, loam, incense, and fresh blackberries. It enters the palate with a rush of flavor, then broadens and lengthens through the finish. There is excellent structure, even as the wine is balanced and nimble. It is built for the long haul and should age for more than a decade.
James Suckling, 95 Points: "A tight cabernet with a core of attractive blackberries and blackcurrants, as well as undertones of mint and sage. Tar, too. Full body and polished, integrated tannins. Flavorful finish. Serious wine."
Wine Advocate, 94 Points: "Composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon MMXVII is deep garnet-purple in color. It charges out of the gate with bold black and red cherries notes, followed by a core of mulberries and cassis with hints of Indian spices and roses. The full-bodied palate is concentrated and full-on seductive, featuring mouth-coating black fruit layers offset by great freshness and seductively plush tannins, finishing long and spicy."
