DVO Napa Valley 2018

$300

A racy cast iron spine drives the core of red currant, damson plum and mulberry flavors, while singed alder and tobacco form the backdrop. The cast iron notes emerge forcefully on the finish, sacrificing a refined feel for a pleasant hint of rusticity instead—and there's nothing wrong with that. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2024 through 2038. 400 cases made.
