Galerie Plenair Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Beautiful red fruit layers of strawberry jam, raspberry and cherry with nuances of white pepper, tobacco leaf and licorice. Velvety mouth feel with a tannin filled, fruit concentrated, long finish. Nice and balanced with natural acidity that promises many years to enjoy. Pair with: Braised Chicken Thighs with Tomato, Saffron and Green Olives.
A reduction of tar and meaty leather at first overrides elusive fruit in this 100% varietal wine. It's alluring nonetheless, for its soft tannins and toasted hits of oak. Currant, clove and tobacco give a savory, compelling and complex edge to the full-bodied frame.
