Community Tasting Note

  • La Cave d'Argent Likes this wine: 91 points

    May 1, 2016 - This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced entirely from the Regusci Ranch in Napa's Stags Leap District. Opaque ruby, rich and musclebound, it teems with black cherries, lavender, espresso, violets and charry oak. Full-bodied, freshly acidic and with big firm tannins, it has a chewy mouth texture from the tannins but shows no heat from its (reported) 14.4% alcohol. Dense on the mid-palate and concluding with a lengthy, albeit grippy finish, this is one for the cellar. It may merit a higher score when the oak and tannins have had time to fully integrate. Drink 2019-2035.
