Grape Variety
Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah

 

Winemaker’s Notes:
With a generous splash of Syrah, this is a New World interpretation of a Cabernet Sauvignon blend. The Syrah adds unexpected spiciness and juicy, ripe fruit expression. The rich blackberry and black cherry aromas and flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon predominate, while Syrah contributes lush blueberry syrup notes and hints of peppery spice. A sweet smoky note from aging in French oak barrels adds complexity. Charming in its youth, this wine will continue to develop complexity with proper bottle aging.

Tasting Notes:
The Maestro Collection Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah is a dark and brooding wine with intense aromas of blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, fresh espresso and black pepper spice notes, a distinctive characteristic of the Syrah. The palate is big and rich with flavors of juicy macerated blackberries, berry compote, Black cherry, mocha and subtle dried lavender. The tannins are velvety smooth and round, while the mouthfeel is plush, leading to a lengthy finish. A core of bright acidity provides excellent balance, adding to its overall drinkability now or cellaring for several years. This is an intriguing and unique wine and a blend you don’t often see in the Napa Valley but will be a pleasing discovery for many.
