Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon
High-quality Cabernet Sauvignon from Bordeaux and California usually smells of tobacco. The older Cabernets are aged in oak barrels. For this reason, they have mature notes of cigar boxes. Napa Valley Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon is a high-quality Cabernet. The color of this wine is deep, dark brick red to blood plum. The aromas are a seamless combination of creme de cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves, a charry meat toastiness, dark fruits, and blackberry pie along with suggestions of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry, spice, and vanillin.
The palate of this wine is rich and satisfying with chocolate brownie, yogurt, molasses, brown sugar, and rhubarb notes. When it comes to the structure of this wine, the wine’s weight is first felt on the front of the palate. Then it coats the whole mouth with placating tannin and a light, pleasing grittiness. This weight, ideally conterpoised along the acid, will leave your mouth watering. The finish also has a great persistence.
