2016 LA SIRENA NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$175.00

From Jeb Dunnuck, “The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is another beautiful wine from this team, which is headed up by winemaker Heidi Barrett. A sweet nose of blueberries, jammy blackberries, chocolate, spring flowers, and hints of lead pencil all define the bouquet, and this beauty is pure finesse and elegance on the palate. Deep, full-bodied, and flawlessly balanced, it’s a stunning Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that does everything right. There are only 400 cases produced.” 96 Points

Tasting Notes by Winemaker Heidi Barrett, “The 2016 Cab is ripe and concentrated, darkly colored and very aromatic in the glass. Immediate notes of blackberry pie, plum, and black cherry are rounded out with 5 spice, cedar, and an accent of toasty French oak. Big flavors meld with a plush, velvety texture on the palate – tannins are velvety and integrated, providing the structure to make this wine cellar-worthy for many years to come. A strong initial burst of flavor followed by a round mid-palate, culminating in a long finish – it’s a complete wine that leaves a lasting impression. A gorgeous, classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet – powerful and well-balanced.”
