2016 Ca Momi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
An aggressive nose of black licorice, menthol, chewing tobacco, and damp forest floor leads into a full bodied wine that’s smooth and smoky with pronounced notes of oak, dark fruits, faint butterscotch, and more. An ensemble of ultra-fine tannins provide structure and a very dry finish nearly parches the palate. At the very end, a slight crescendo of brighter flavors, difficult to distinguish yet undeniably present. Your palate will think you are drinking a much more expensive wine.
