2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: Terroir Matters

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is soft, supple and gracious. There is little question the 2011 is the most mid-weight, accessible vintage produced here yet. Sweet tobacco, licorice, menthol, cloves and black cherries meld together in this expressive, nuanced Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Francoise Peschon aged the 2011 in 100% new French oak barrels, but there is no sign of new oak at all. The 2011 is an excellent choice for drinking over the next handful of years. Readers lucky enough to own preceding vintages will want to hold onto those, and drink the 2011 in the meantime. Rating: 94
