External Reviews for Sequoia Grove Cab Napa
Sequoia Grove is one of Napa Valley's iconic wineries. The tall Sequoia trees standing outside are immediately recognized by all who drive down Highway 29. But more importantly is that the wines are always recognizable by their quality and consistency year after year. Robert Parker enjoyed it saying ""Sequoia Grove's 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon has gotten even better since I tasted it last year (when I rated it 87). Still young and well-balanced with outstanding potential, it will improve even more with 3-4 more years of bottle age. Tightly-knit with lots of tannin but also copious quantities of black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of spice box, oak and earth, this elegant Cabernet should evolve for 15-20 years. 89+"
The dark ruby-hued, medium-bodied 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals more minerality along with black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with hints of tobacco leaf and spice box. It is ideal for drinking over the next decade.
Not quite in the same league as the winery's '03 Morisoli Cab but at less than half the price, a very good Cabernet. Polished and dry, it's ripe in the modern style, and well-structured in acids and tannins. With true varietal flavors of blackberry jam and cherries, sweetened with smoky cedar, it's beautiful now.
Young, elegant and impeccably structured, this classic Napa Cab is 90% Oakville and Rutherford. It's a dry, fairly oaky wine, with polished black currant flavors, wrapped in thick tannins that finish with rich complexity.
Dark and perfumed with oak, this has an herbal, peppery edge that gives a Bordelais impression, while the sweetness places it in Napa Valley. The tannins are hard as mineral water, needing some tine to mellow. Cellar two to three years.
This is a dark, big, deeply flavored Cabernet whose tannic structure strongly suggests mid- to long-term aging. Bone dry, it has flashy flavors of black currants, dark chocolate and cedar. Very fine. Best 2010-2015, if not longer in a proper cellar.
Chocolate bliss. This is the sort of textural pleasure that Napa Valley does well. It feels round, torqued up by oak, not detailed in its flavors but given over to luxury. For steak.
