2017 Cervantes Blacktail Napa Valley Proprietary Red 750ml

Winery Notes- The wine is as complex, expansive, and hedonistic as it sounds. The wine is juicy and fruit-driven, with notes of blueberries and cream, chocolate, flint and baking spices. Its silky texture is very alluring, as as the wine flows across the palate there is an ever-increasing list of descriptors that come to mind, from bing cherry, black currant and nutmeg, to white flowers, chaparral, and clove.

Price :

The 2017 Blacktail Proprietary Red Blend MMXVII is a blend of 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Malbec, 23% Petite Sirah and 4% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it is a little closed to begin, requiring some swirling to reveal a seducing perfume of lilacs, baked plums, blueberry pie and spice cake with hints of potpourri, unsmoked cigars and chocolate mint. The palate is medium to full-bodied and concentrated, but not in the least heavy, delivering layer upon layer of perfumed black fruits and a velvety texture, finishing fragrant and long, long, long. It is an exercise in polish and poise. 305 cases were made.
