Marciano Estate Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Harvested between September 18th to October 7th, all of our grapes are hand- picked at night to keep the fruit chilled, then gently hand-sorted, fermented, barrel- aged 22 months in French oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. An impressive dark red ruby burgundy color, intensely aromatic with great complexity, boasting rich aromas of dark cocoa, espresso, graphite, anise, black fruits, and ripe summer berries. On the palate, it offers soft tannins, building to a densely focused, well-structured dry mid- palate, layered with flavors of creamy chocolate, ripe blackberries, blueberries, black cherry, licorice, and vanilla. The finish is lingering, fresh and luscious, while refined and elegant. This 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is exceptionally generous in its youth with 1-2 hours decanting. Highly recommend cellaring to allow a beautiful bottle bouquet development. Ageability 25+ Years.
A great wine from a more challenging vintage, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon offers terrific complexity in its chocolaty dark fruits, spice box, and cedar pencil aromatics. These give way to a medium to full-bodied, silky, beautifully balanced Cabernet that can be enjoyed any time over the coming 15+ years.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Marciano Estate is another impressive 2017 from Marciano. Sweet red cherry, red plum, tobacco, mint, licorice and spice are nicely pushed forward. Supple and racy with terrific depth and resonance, the 2017 hits all the right notes. In the glass, the 2017 is a bit lighter than most previous vintages, but it has tons of character as well as personality.
