Canvasback Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain (84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 2% Mourvedre, 2% Petit Verdot, and 1% Syrah) sports a deep purple color to go with lots of smoked black fruits, chocolate, and classic Red Mountain minerality. Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, and balanced, with ripe tannins, it's another impressive wine from this team that will evolve for 10-12 years, if not longer. Tasting date: 2020-2033." Apr 2020% petit verdot and 2% cabernet franc. Drink over the next six years." Apr 2019
Winery: "This fragrant wine begins with alluring aromas of blackberry, plum and mountain huckleberry intermingled with brighter notes of Bing cherry and ripe wild strawberry. As it evolves in the glass, layers of anise and sarsaparilla are revealed, alongside hints of caramel and espresso from barrel aging. On the palate, the entry is supple, weighty and rounded, with deliciously ripe tannins and juicy acidity coming together to create a classically structured Cabernet. Underscoring its lush character and fruit intensity is a lovely freshness that carries the wine to a bright, lingering finish."
