Postmark Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
From Duckhorn, one of our favorite Napa Valley vintners, we have the Postmark Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a humdinger, winelovers, and at a much gentler price than your typical Duckhorn Cabernet! Dark, delicious fruit, woven with herbal and floral notes, in a gorgeous, full body with the perfect amount of acidity to make this some superbly balanced juice. It's perfect for a Sunday roast surrounded by winter root vegetables, a big, steaming bowl of fettucine bolognaise, or a layered shepherd's pie topped with buttery, creamy mashed potatoes. How does that sound??
Winery: "From its deep crimson color to its velvety texture and alluring layers of fresh blackberry, boysenberry and cassis, you can taste the warm Napa Valley sun in this luxurious Cabernet. On the palate, hints of violet, lavender and dark chocolate add to the delicious depth of this wine, with a pleasing touch of acidity bringing brightness and poise to a lush fruit-driven finish.
While a warm, dry winter a a wet spring led to a later-than-normal start to the 2018 growing season, picture-perfect summer weather in Napa Valley ensured ideal ripeness in the grapes, yielding Cabernet Sauvignon with lovely color, silky tannins and vibrant fruit flavors."
Postmark: "A Postmark is an official seal traditionally stamped on letters to indicate a significant place and date.
