With a nose of fresh cut redwood, leather, and tobacco, the 2017 Hollis Cabernet Sauvignon is fresh and dark in aroma and structured on the palate. Flavors of blackberry, blackcurrant, and blueberry line the palate of this classic, full-bodied Napa Valley Cab. The bold and smooth tannins lead into the long and full finish. We suggest decanting if drinking now. 85% Max Vineyard, 1% Juliana Vineyard, & 14% Brokenrock Vineyard. 22 months in 40% new French oak barrels. 1000 cases produced.
