Sequoia Grove Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Sequoia Grove is a family-owned winery founded in 1979 in a 110-year old barn beneath a grove of Sequoia trees in Rutherford, Napa Valley. The estate produces world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and other Napa Valley wines that emphasize elegance, finesse, structure and balance. Sequoia Grove's consistent philosophy of making wines with varietal character that are reflective of the land helped establish the winery as one of the premier Cabernet Sauvignon producers in Napa Valley. Their 24-acre Estate Vineyard and 50-acre Tonella Ranch Vineyard are both located in the heart of Rutherford, where the superb climate and gravelly-loam soils impart distinct flavor in the Bordeaux varieties.

Jeb DunnuckThe entry-level Cabernet, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep purple-hued effort offering lots of upfront currant and blackberry fruits, notes of scorched earth and chocolate, medium to full body, good tannins, and plenty of classy Cabernet character. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years.
