2016 Montesquieu Success Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
This is the grand finale of our 2016 Napa Cabs and we went all out. A massive 100% Cab from a cool, totally organic Calistoga vineyard nestled at the bottom of the hills. Each grape was cherry picked by our winemaker and her team, and this wine brings the thunder with big bold luscious fruit and complexity for seems to never end.
The Success has the deepest dark crimson color and it’s love at first sip. Prepare to be swept away by aromas of black cherry skin dusted with hints of white pepper and fresh herbs. The palate takes you on a joyride with hulking flavors of blackberry and roasted plum all framed by a sweet velvety tannin and subtle hints of spice. Then the finish comes through with subtle hints of dark chocolate shavings, cherry jam, and a touch of spice, the perfect finish to a perfect expression of Napa Cab.
