Sailor's Grave 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2014 Sailors Grave Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep burgundy in the glass, brooding with inky red undertones, hinting at the wine's depth. The nose is explosive with classic cassis, blueberry, and clove. The mouth is revealed layer by layer, with malted chocolate, ripe red cherries, freshly roasted coffee, and a full spice rack of sweet toasted oak - cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. The tannins are finely grained and creamy, and provide a broad framework for the wine's charisma. Decant to enjoy this wine at its fullest now, or age for 10-15 years for a reward of patience.
Enjoy this stellar Cabernet with grilled flap meat, served with garlic sautéed spinach and roasted new potatoes.
