2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Father Mathew, Family Collection, Yountville
The 2017 Father Mathew Cabernet Sauvignon opens with powerful aromas of black raspberry, ripe red fruit, toasty oak, loamy earth, and cocoa powder. The palate is remarkably rich and complex. It treats you to waves of ripe plum, cherry liqueur, boysenberry, vanilla, and clove that is followed by a long finish of smoky minerality. In typical Father Mathew Vineyard fashion, this Cabernet is completely approachable and possesses the generous fruit flavors that Yountville is known for.
