2013 "Maritus" Cabernet Blend, Napa Valley
With each swirl the air is filled with luscious aromas of ripe plum, blackberries, toasty oak and a touch of floral. The first sip releases layers of black fruit flavors intertwined with smoked spices and a hint of cedar. Round and lush, the core is juicy, with refined tannins. Black cherry and boysenberry flavors linger on the polished finish. With a little patience you will be rewarded with and expressive wine that will grow more complex over time.
