Addax 2017 Cabernet Blend Napa Valley

Quite possibly the best 2017 Cab that we’ve tasted from the 2017 vintage!

The amount of care and selection that must have gone into making a wine like this from a vintage that gave us so much heartache, is unfathomable. Plush and velvety in the palate with loads of grip, the 52% Oakville Cab Sauv from Tench and 48% Sugarloaf Mountain Merlot is turned up to ELEVEN!! What Russell Bevon does with his Sugarloaf Mountain vineyard – is freaking awesome: power, texture, development and the ability to coax everything out of the vines. With this being near equal parts Merlot and Cab Sauv, it shows this crazy blend of dark rich fruits, a pastry chef’s pantry, tared asphalt, and cognac-soaked cigar. There’s 18 months of French oak that add both vanilla-sawdust and smoked almonds. 350 cases.
