Beaucanon Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2016
|Availability:||In stock (13)|
The 2016 Beaucanon Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (blended with 10% Merlot and 0.5% of Petit Verdot) offers elegant yet riper style aromas on the bouquet. Garnet in the glass, the wine offers aromas of plum, dark cherry and black licorice. Also notes of cassis, the faint smell of old cedar and a subtle darker spice nuance. The bouquet about the fruit rather then secondary characteristics from the oak aging.
Fairly supple on entry, this harmonious texture follows the full breadth of the palate. Finishes with higher toned fruits including red cherry, raspberry and plum that errs on the less ripe side. The tannins are somewhat grainy – darker in nature but not course – lingers with a tobacco smokiness and white pepper. Slightly chewy on the finish. Very approachable in its youth but with attributes that will allow this wine to age nicely for at least the next 10+ years – including good acid, depth of flavor and tannins. Very reasonably priced.
