Cabernet & Cabernet Blends
Red Table Wine
Duckhorn Vineyards has produced Cabernet Sauvignon since 1978. This particular wine, which combines fruit from Duckhorn’s estate vineyards and top independent growers, embodies the complexity of Napa Valley.
A classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet, this wine combines beautiful complexity with rich intensity. Layers of blackberry, huckleberry and black currants are supported by firm, dusty tannins that frame the fruit. On the palate, it is juicy and bright, with luxurious cassis and dark berry flavours supported by notes of fig, cardamom, clove and cracked black pepper that linger on the long, well-structured finish. You’ll be pleased to know that this wine is both approachable in its youth and worthy of cellaring.
“Don’t believe blanket proclamations about there being no Napa Valley red wine from 2020. Offerings might be few, but there are still examples worth seeking out. This is spot-on Cabernet from the Merlot masters, with classic regional profile showing on the generous side, with nice herb character folded in. Approachable now, and age-worthy as well, with no “fire sign.” Contains 7% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.”
