Salvestrin "Dr. Crane" Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (Napa Valley, CA)
Producer Notes: Black cherry and blackberry are the first aromatics to shine through on this elegant Cabernet. Full bodied and rich, the tannins are firm yet refined, commanding a robust plush quality. Hints of barrel spices reveal a slight toastiness, which is complemented by cigar box, leather, and plum on the back end.
Wine Advocate, 94+ Points: “The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Crane Vineyard is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and an earthy nose with kirsch, black berries, cassis and baking spices plus cigar hints. The palate is medium to full-bodied, plush, intense and earthy, finishing long and spicy."
Wine Spectator, 90 Points: “Well-built, with a solid core of cassis and cherry reduction flavors, wrapped in warm tobacco leaf and cocoa notes. Reveals a light savory hint throughout, giving this lift and range. Fleshy finish. Best from 2020 through 2028."
