Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 Kongsgaard Napa Valley is a regal wine of grand proportions. The aromatic layers of graphite, cedar, and dark chocolate anticipate the great concentration of mineral and fruit flavors. The long, luxurious finish is the result of our meticulous tannin extraction during fermentation and maceration-the crucial period of the vinification when the wine's magnificent architecture is formed. The dense and silky structure will propel this powerful wine through its long life.
A barrel sample, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with red and black currants, black cherries and black raspberries with hints of roses and lilacs plus notes of cinnamon stick and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins, it has a good intensity and red and black fruit characters and a savory finish.
