2011 Mario Bazán Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2011 Mario Bazán Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: “Aromatic cedar, Damson plum and subtle notes of black tea leaf make this an intriguing glass to hold. The flavors are straight from Bordeaux with ripe plums, pomegranate, crushed violets, and a subtle spice of clove making this a vintage to remember. The texture is supple and soft, yet refreshing. This is a deftly balanced wine that will develop additional layers of complexity over the next decade.

This great grape may have come to Napa from Bordeaux, but we have been able to add a layer or two. If ever there was a vintage to compare to Bordeaux, this one may be the most appropriate. Whatever your conclusion, 2011 will be a vintage that you will want to revisit to enjoy.”
