2018 Matthew Wallace Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Nearly opaque deep purple hue in the glass with a dark garnet halo. Intricately woven aromatic notes suggest cedar bark, boysenberry, spearmint, and loam. The entry of this wine has a decidedly fruit-forward approach with a pleasingly structural mid-palate defined by earth-focused and umami notes. While young and tightly packed now, with a few hours in the decanter or a few years in the cellar this wine will show it's true decadent, expressive nature.
