Tasting Notes: Tasted 08/14/20 by HPB
We were extremely lucky to harvest this fruit before the fires of 2017, so we were able to produce a wine of pure character with zero smoke damage. The 2017 La Sirena Cab is very dark blackberry in color, with the ripe, layered aromatics of Cab Sauv and a lifted note from the addition of Cab Franc. Across the palate the wine is vibrant, balanced, and explosive with flavor. Soft and silky in texture, yet has a powerful structure and expression of fruit. Flavors are black fruit-driven with dark cherry and berry notes dominating, layered with sweet toasty French oak as a complement. Ageworthy yet approachable as of this tasting. Tannins are pretty mild in this vintage, not needing much time in the bottle at all. A great example of classic Napa Cab – purely delicious!
