2017 Matthew Wallace Cabernet Sauvignon Regusci Ranch Block 1
Completely opaque inky-purple hue in the glass with a dark violet halo. This wine has bold hillside Napa Cabernet Sauvignon character full and through. Expansive, sweeping aromas suggest sage smoke, macerated currant, cocoa dust, nutmeg and star anise. The trajectory of this wine is sleek with mouth-coating palate notes of blackberry reduction, tobacco leaf, distressed leather, and bramble. While very appealing and accessible now, with 3-5 years in the cellar it will open up with even more to offer.
