Sequoia Grove Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark red/black in color, the nose gives an immediate aroma of raspberries and warm baking spices, leading into cassis and clove. The palate has elements of pie crust, with smooth, silky tannins and well balanced acidity. Alcohol 14.2%. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 90 points by both James Suckling and Wine Enthusiast, which wrote: This is the winery's basic Cabernet Sauvignon, but it shows the depth and complexity of their more expensive bottlings. This really exemplifies Napa's rich, smooth tannins and dramatically ripe black currant, anise and dark chocolate flavors. The vineyards that contributed to the blend are some of the valley's best. It's a blend of all five classic Bordeaux varieties, with 1% Syrah.

Sequoia Grove Vineyards:
There’s most definitely something special about life in the Grove. Is it the towering Sequoia trees that define the estate and inspired the name? Is it the atmosphere of unassuming sophistication? Is it our unique combination of award-winning wines (led by our signature Cabernet) created with an artisan spirit? It’s all of the above—and more. And it’s right here, waiting to be discovered.

This wine reminded me why I really love cab and why I don't drink cheap cabs! This one is a lot of wine for the money. Very flavorful, all the dark fruits one expects from a good cab, with a killer finish.
