2016 Boeschen Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
I have never sat in a French bistro overlooking the Champs Elysees while enjoying the finest cuisine. I have never read a first print of The Call of the Wild while sitting amongst the finest literary classics a prestigious library. But those are two feelings that I get when tasting the 2016 Boeschen Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is an extraordinary example of winemaking with passion, care and diligence. Many Napa Valley Cabernet examples are very fruit forward, but this one is more reserved, a big and powerful statement that is held back by the door of opportunity in a wine that can be enjoyed now or for the next 20+ years. Dark purple, almost inky, this wine has a balance of dark cherry, tobacco leaf, cassis, and antique spice cabinet with satin-like tannin. This wine was tasted at room temperature multiple times (hence, the wine streaks on the label!) with and without food and was a true champion every time. I would recommend this with braised short ribs or venison. Absolutely wonderful!
