Region: Napa Valley, CA
Italics 2015 Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon
Our customers' feedback and excitement for Coombsville wines is why we continue to seek them out. This region, being one of the newest AVA's in Napa, was once a prized secret location for so many producers sourcing fruit. Now on the radar, and home to so many amazing small wine producers just waiting to be discovered, our team is always enthusiastic to uncover wine gems from the Coombsville AVA.
This particular robust and dynamic estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Italics Winegrowers was a wine we spent a great deal of time with, tasting at intervals as it evolved and opened up. A beauty in the glass, this medium ruby colored wine gives off aromas of black cherry, blackberry jam, Earl Grey tea, violets and lavender. The palate is well structured with integrated tannins throughout. Fruit flavors of plum and blackberry are pronounced up front and lead the way to sandalwood, lavender, bakeshop spice and warm oak. This wine is built to last so acquire a few and taste over the next few years.
