David Arthur Three Acre Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Robert M. Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "Composed of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Three Acre has a deep garnet-purple color and is beautifully perfumed of candied violets, Ceylong tea, underbrush and cigar box scents with a core of blackcurrant cordial, redcurrant jelly and black raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly styled and very polished on the palate, it has an exquisitely fine-grained texture and long harmonious finish. Drink date: 2019-2035." Dec 2018
Winery: "Our 'Three Acre' Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, is sourced directly from a small three acre parcel that is planted exclusively to clone 337. This wine's color is very dark ruby and nearly opaque while offering lifted aromas of dark currant, black raspberry followed by hints of sage and lavender oral notes. There are baking spices and hints of toffee and espresso. The palate is plush and punchy with forward style tannins yet firm and bold followed by flavors of dark cherries, chocolate and candied licorice. The finish is long and persistent with fine grained tannins."
