White Rock Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, California
Tastes Like: Blackberry, Black Cherry, Oak
White Rock is one of Napa’s oldest winemaking estates, dating to 1870. This is an elegantly fruited, powerful Cabernet with gorgeously concentrated flavors of black currant, dark cherry, and blackberry on the palate. Rich and oaky, with great minerality and a long, mouthcoating finish.
“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is a beauty, with loads of graphite, white chocolate, crème de cassis and blackberry fruit are present in this medium to full-bodied wine with excellent texture, length and personality. The wine tips the scales at 14.7% alcohol, and was aged 24 months in one-third new French oak. Stylistically it reminded me of a hypothetical blend of a Bordeaux-Medoc and a ripe Napa Cabernet. It’s dark ruby purple and should drink well for 15 or more years.” – 92 Points, Wine Advocate
