Our 2017 Limited Release Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon begins with aromas of blackberry, black current and cinnamon. Flavors of black plum, berry jam and vanilla are followed by velvety tannins and balanced finish.
Our 2017 Limited Release Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is made from a blend of vineyards from across Napa Valley, primarily composed of grapes from the vineyards located in the high elevation mountains that surround the valley. These mountain top vineyards are known for creating wines with intense power and concentration. A smaller portion of this wine comes from the valley floor regions of Napa Valley, which help to balance and soften the texture of the complete blend.
The 2017 vintage started much wetter than in recent memory. We had many rainy days. The growing season in general was cooler and wetter which slowed grape ripening, which makes one of the longest harvest seasons at Black Stallion Estate Winery.
