CERVANTES 2017 MMXVI Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
JEB DUNNUCK, 96 POINTS, JEB DUNNUCK - January 2020: Every bit as good as the 2016, if not better, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a stunning nose of crème de cassis, crushed flowers, violet, garrigue, and even a touch of orange blossom. It’s complex aromatically, with the herbal, exotic note that’s always present in this cuvée, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful balance, and ripe tannins, all making for a captivating, incredibly satisfying Napa Cabernet that’s going to drink nicely for 15-20 years.
WINE ADVOCATE, 94 POINTS, LISA PERROTTI-BROWN October 2020: Composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon MMXVII is deep garnet-purple in color. It charges out of the gate with bold black and red cherries notes, followed by a core of mulberries and cassis with hints of Indian spices and roses. The full-bodied palate is concentrated and full-on seductive, featuring mouth-coating black fruit layers offset by great freshness and seductively plush tannins, finishing long and spicy. 225 cases were made.
