Pozzan 2013 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2013 Pozzan Gold Series Cabernet Sauvignon glows a rich deep purple red in the glass. Extroverted from the very start, the wine erupts with compelling aromas of blueberries, cassis, sweet saddle leather, and the subtle vanilla of toasted French oak. In the mouth, the wine strikes a dramatic chord with layers of showy flavors - dark chocolate covered cherries, ripe boysenberries, espresso, charred oak, and just a hint of a forest floor of dried leaves. The wine is extremely well structured, with tannins that are supple, broad, and dense. The lengthy finish carries a hint of nutmeg and vanilla bean.
