CERVANTES Proprietary Blend, Napa Valley 'MMXVII Blacktail' 2017

The 2017 Cervantes Napa Valley 'Blacktail' Proprietary Blend is another fabulous showing in this vintage. Composed of an interesting blend which is lead by 37% Malbec, along with 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, this instantly opens to a beautiful aromatic profile of ripe blackberries, dark cherries, loam, exotic spices, herbs, licorice and hints of dark chocolate that all take shape. On the palate this is full-bodied and voluptuous, structured with gorgeous polished tannins that create a wonderful seamless texture. It goes on to display excellent depth, with a ripe core focused around dark fruit and exotic spices that continue to expand beautifully into the plush finish. While this is absolutely delicious now, it also has plenty of potential to age gracefully for years to come. The Cervantes Family have burst onto the scene with their fantastic, extremely approachable wines, and with Andy Erickson overseeing the winemaking one can only expect even more exciting wines on the way.
