The clarity of crimson red hues in the 2017 Calistoga Cabernet leads to open, appealing aromas of bright cherry and wild berry fruit sweetened with notes of cinnamon and cardamom. On the palate, flavors of black cherry, black currant and Kirsch accented with notes of vanilla, caramel and mint coat the mouth with velvety, cocoa-dusted tannins, the juicy acidity lifting the fruit for a lingering finish.
Perfumed notes of plum, blackberry leaf, bitter chocolate, tobacco and hazelnut. Hint of wild strawberry. It’s full-bodied with firm, velvety tannins. Creamy and smooth with layers of luscious fruit.
