Selah Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain|
There are 500 cases of the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Selah, a hidden gem in this vintage. Gorgeous notes of blue fruits, herbes de Provence, candied violets, and spice all emerge from the glass, and it's full-bodied, pure, and beautifully balanced. I'd be thrilled to drink bottles any time over the coming 15 years or more.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a heady, savory wine with tons of Howell Mountain character. Dark red stone fruit, grilled herb, chocolate, plum and juniper berry all run through this inky, dense Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2017 is racy and unapologetically flamboyant, but it is also impeccably balanced, especially within the context of the year. It's an impressive showing for a young estate with just a few vintages under their belt.
