Cab is the quintessential Napa grape. Across the world the name Napa is associated with the name Cabernet Sauvignon. So if you are going to make a Napa Cab you better do it right. And folks, Ernie has done it right yet again! The aromas of bright dark fruit and dark cherries catch your attention and are balanced with black pepper, pipe smoke, mint and eucalyptus. Flavors of raspberry brambles and deep rich dark Marion berry flow across the palate. Notes of the deep forest floor and sun warmed leather round out this wine. The big, structured tannins are showing their age very well with many more years of potential within them.
