2017 RAPP RANCH, Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

2017 RAPP RANCH, Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Our single vineyard Cabernet from the Coombsville AVA, is inky purple in color, with an imposing structure that frames a mouthful of savory spices, blackberries, and wild herbs. The tannins are silky and smooth, leading to a remarkable impression of black fruits and lingering flavors on the palate.

ACCOLADES

"Amorosa’s Rapp Ranch cabernet bottling has a very suave, cedary nose with regal, dark-berry aromas, typical of cabernet, as well as hints of fresh leather. The palate is so succulent and juicy with very fresh and attractively detailed tannins carrying good length. Fresh finish. Drink or hold." - 93 Points, James Suckling

Vineyard Notes
Long established as a premier horse ranch in the rural countryside of southern Napa Valley, is located in the heart of Coombsville. The defining characteristics of Coombsville, the newest sub-appellation in the Napa Valley, are the long, cool growing seasons that reward patient winemakers with intensely concentrated and complex wines.
Winemaker Notes
Winter provided a record-breaking rainfall, a welcome end to the 4 years of drought. Bloom and fruit set in May occured under ideal conditions. Summer was warm but the vines weathered the heat well and maturity moved along at a steady pace. The 2017 wine quality shows a lot of sweet fruit flavors and firm tannin structure in the reds. Looking like it will be another classic year! - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking

A lot of muscle here - strong dark fruit (blackberry, plum) - leather - dark chocolate - oak
