La Pelle 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
300 CASES PRODUCED
The 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot sourced from multiple vineyards that we farm in-house. A great representation of the vintage, it’s a blend of four different appellations (Coombsville, Oak Knoll, Oakville and St. Helena) and was aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak barrels and an additional 6 months in bottle, prior to release. On the nose, beautiful red fruit and fresh strawberry notes, followed by hints of violet and creme de cassis are enhanced by excellent acidity and tannin structure. Mid to full-bodied, the wine is layered with flavors without being overwhelming and the long, lingering finish leaves you with essence of dark chocolate, black cherry and a hint of vanilla.
