2017 Routestock Cabernet Sauvignon Route 29
2017 Routestock Cabernet Sauvignon Route 29, Napa Valley, California.
The aromas of this wine are very classic Napa Valley, seducing you with notes of blackberry, bay laurel, cocoa and dusty plum. The palate is expansive throughout with mouth-watering flavors of black plum, mushroom, chocolate and savory hints of bay leaf. The wine fills the mouth with richness, fruit, a bright acidity and just enough natural grape and oak tannin to lengthen the wine into a great lingering aftertaste. The use of four Bordeaux varietals adds to the complexity, depth and interest of this finely crafted Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Named for a north-to-south throughway that traverses Napa Valley, this blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cab Franc with small portions of Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Merlot exudes aromas of mint, cedar, and ripe blackberry. The nose mimics the palate, which sees the addition of a dusting of chocolate as well as violets and savory Italian herbs.
