@Delectable Wine : This is the Arnyca Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a brand new wine (still in the shiner!), so I didn’t find it in the database.

Day 1 of Napa in the books!

My affection for Arnyca’s CabFranc is well documented, and in 2016, they had the chance to make some CabSauv from Howell Mtn. Even at this age, after 30-45mins in the decanter, it really mellowed out and was plush. Dark, baked fruits, chocolate, graphite, sweet toasted oak. The aromatics had a very pronounced smoked cedar and fig note. Very accessible for a ‘16 Howell Mtn Cabernet, & extremely smooth. Lots of potential here. Excited to see how it evolves.
