Vineyard 36 2013 Thirty Six Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
The V36 Cabernet Sauvignon jumps from the glass the moment it is poured. This big, dark serious wine is very complex and layered. Black raspberry, dark currant and caramel kick off the nose. This is followed by more caramel and a hint of truffle. The palate is silky and lush with flavors of fresh coffee, cigar box and vanilla. The tannins are present and chalky without being overbearing. There is a wonderful degree of acidity in the wine to balance the lushness.
