Addax 2018 Cabernet Napa
2018 Addax Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 99+ Points
Fruit forward and intense, the aromas of this delicious Cab are a focused mix of blackberry, black currant, dark cherry galette, clove, cedar, toasted hazelnut, black tea, graphite and licorice root scents. It is rich and gutsy on the palate with coiled flavors of dark cherry, cherry pit, black raspberry, black currant, fig, coffee bean, dark pipe tobacco, licorice root, graphite and hazelnut that are focused and energetic. The finish is concentrated, lingering and food-balanced and there is ample tannin for cellaring. Expect four to five years of improvement at minimum. Fruit sourced from vineyards in Oakville, Rutherford, Pritchard Hill and Atlas Peak. 561 cases produced.
