This 10 year old Napa Cabernet is drinking very nicely now. Showing black fruits with chocolates, coke, earth, light vegetables, vanilla, oak, licorice and black pepper.

Full bodied elegant and smooth with medium acidity.

Long finish with firm tannins after 3 hours of airtime.

Nice mouthfeel, but let it open up properly.

13.8% alcohol by volume.

90 points

Superior to the 2011 vintage, this Cab is full of chocolate, cinnamon, and black cherries with a thick tannic coffee finish. Great cocktail wine 🍷

Avalon celebrates the world’s most popular grape, Cabernet Sauvignon. Our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from grapes grown in selected sub-appellations within this world famous growing region.

Rutherford AVA: Producing world renown Cabernet for over a century, this distinct terroir reflects the legendary “Rutherford Dust” and adds a powerful elegance and complexity to the wine.

Atlas Peak AVA: Classic Napa mountain fruit. Temperatures tend to be about 10 degrees cooler than the valley floor. This allows for longer hang time and flavor development that adds concentration and complexity to the wine.

Chiles Valley District: Nestled in the Vaca Mountains on the northeast side of Napa Valley, this appellation has a warmer climate than other portions of Napa Valley and adds lush, rich fruit flavors and velvety tannins.

Coombsville AVA: A newly designated AVA, Coombsville has moderate temperatures and a long slow growing season. These vineyards provide excellent structure and mouth feel, along with underlying layers of earth and mineral flavors.

Lots of dark notes like chocolate and dark cherries. Pretty silky feeling but with a dry tannic finish.

This is a very solid cab! On the nose, cinnamon, lavender, and cherry. On the palate, blackberry, tart cherry, medium tannins, smoke, and a mocha finish. Definitely worth a try! #lifeisacabernet #winelife #napavalleywines #bigredwines
