JD93 The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is another medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured 2017. Blue fruits, toasted spices, and smoked tobacco notes give way to a seamless, polished 2017 offering terrific tannins, a pure, layered mouthfeel, and a great finish.
Post Parade refers to the moment when thoroughbred horses walk on to the racetrack, minutes before stepping in to the starting gate. At the helm is Thomas Rivers Brown, one of Napa Valley’s most distinctive and acclaimed winemakers. Thomas works with three powerful vineyards—Tench Vineyard in Oakville, Red Head Vineyard located on Old Soda Springs Road north of the city of Napa and Ithaca Vineyard located in the Rutherford AVA.
Thomas Rivers Brown Notes: “This is a dark, spicy, complex wine that shows the robust character of the 2017 growing season. The wine displays a completely opaque dark purple hue in the glass with a garnet halo. Layered aromas of leather, loam, nutmeg, and cassis reduction emerge from the glass in waves. There is a rich, red and black fruit entry on the front of the palate, followed by more structural and terrene notes through the core of the middle. The mouthfeel of the wine has a consistent, fine tannin structure that carries all the way through to a floral and mouth-watering finish.”
