Smith Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Spring Mountain District|
The aroma of the 2019 Smith-Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon immediately hits you with a beautiful combination of blue/black fruit. Cassis, black cherry, marionberry and black plums dominate. Reach a little deeper and you will find subtle hints of black pepper, graphite, black olives and a range of spices. An experienced taster should also be able to identify the signature quality that 12% Cabernet Franc lends to this wine's seductive nose.
Good acidity and firm tannins combine for a grippy texture in this tangy, red-fruited wine made from the dry-farmed mountain property. Slightly lean red cherries and raspberries are accented with light herbal, toasty notes. Best from 2027-2037.
