2017 Onslaught, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
96 Pts. Martin Sheehan-Stross,
A wine drivien by layered fruit, but loads of dusty minerality as well. Full-bodied with ripe tannins, the wine coats the palate while maintaining a freshness and deft balance on the finish.
Intense aromas of dark plum and black cherry burst from the glass. This wine has a beautiful balance between tannin and fruit. The palate has enticing flavors of darker red fruits—black cherry, cassis, and cranberry. The structure & body is lengthened in your mouth by the well-integrated oak notes that frame this wine. The soft and silky tannins allow for a long-lasting finish.
