Description

Tasting Notes:

“Many wineries claim that their wines emulate the incredible Napa Valley Cabernets of the 1970’s; this wine actually achieves that style.

The 2016 Unwritten Cabernet Sauvignon from St Helena is a study in elegance. On the nose there are scents of tobacco leaf, forest floor and acacia flower. The palate displays flavors of red currant, anise and a sophisticated note of iron/clay minerality.

Perfectly integrated tannins seamlessly support the body of the wine throughout the palate.

The 2016 is a graceful wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for future enjoyment.

It is refreshing to see wines being made in this refined style again.”
