2017 PARALLEL NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
From Robert Parker’s The WINE ADVOCATE, “Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon displays notes of prunes, spice cake, plum pudding and blueberry preserves with touches of red currant jelly, dried herbs, tobacco and olives. Full-bodied, firm and chewy and with tons of fruit at the core, it finished long and spicy.” WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS
From the WINE ENTHUSIAST, “Savory, herbal and thick in brawny concentration, this powerful wine is darkly layered in blackberry, black currant and wild raspberry. Clove, dried herb and a twist of sage figure into the midpalate, adding complexity and welcome intrigue as generous oak layers throughout.” WINE ENTHUSIAST 92 POINTS
Spectator, Vinous, and Dunnuck haven’t rated this one yet, and once they chime in, I believe a much higher-score will be revealed. Nonetheless, any wine Legendary Philippe Melka master crafts is a silky smooth signature, and a luxurious style for fans of Upper Echelon Napa Cabernet, Collectors, and those who imbibe the finest wines in the world, this is case-worthy. Stemming from Iconic Napa Fruit, this world-class Cabernet Sauvignon is simply stunning from first sip to last drop.
