Thistle & Thorn Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 - Napa Valley, Califronia
Varietals: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet has a deep, dark nose of ripe plum, vanilla, and a hint of blueberry. Flavors of blackberry, blackcurrant, and toasty, French oak line the palate of this classic, full-bodied Napa Valley Cab. The fine-grain and velvety tannins lead into the long and lingering finish. Only 920 cases produced.
