In the glass, this Napa Cab has a voluptuous blackberry core with maroon edges that’re surrounded by a thin pink halo…
The nose is JAM PACKED with toasted oak and raspberry purree…. Another sniff adds some cedar wood, cherry cola, and an herbaceous kiss to the mix and I think I’m in love…..
A taste starts bright with a flash of bing cherry acid before taking a nose-dive to the savory side of things with more of the oak I got on the nose before cassis and violet flowers slow-dance on my tongue ————-> A chew and a swish shows some cottony tannins that carry zesty raspberries and sugared plums….. This guy finishes even better than it starts with a loooooooong muddled blackberry and anise ending that I’m dying over….
Carini Wine has done it again guys but this time with a RIDICULOUSLY GOOD expression of Napa Cab ————> With only 70 cases of this stuff made, you’d be a fool not to grab a bottle (or 3) to throw in your cellar to pop over the coming holidays!!!! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with a classic like Dire Straits – Sultans of Swing
