Jarvis 2008 Estate Grown Cave Fermented Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

Cellar Selection

This low production, 100% Cab offers the most perfectly ripe black currant fruit, with complicating hints of pencil lead, violets, dark chocolate shavings and, of course, lots of toasty oak. The fact that it's now more than five years old has helped to mellow it, but the tannins are still quite hard. The beautiful estate vineyard sits high in the Vaca Mountains, which helps to account for the wine's intensity and concentration. This is truly a world-class Cabernet that will age through at least 2032.
