Sequoia Grove Napa Valley 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon




Sequoia Grove Napa Valley 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, $25.49-$32.99, 91 points, was a "red, red wine" with a clear wine ring at the tear laden glass wall.
Ah! And Ah again as finally after three bottles of red wine fool's gold I found the mother-load; Sequoia Grove struck me with rich aromas of pencil, lavender, cedar, black currant and blackberry with a hint of tanned leather.
The smooth full body with good acidity and firm fine tannins supported flavors reflective of the aromas plus trailing plum
notes.
Finished long on the late palate with a bit of savory, easy warm spices, and a balanced 14.2% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my spiced-rubbed rare Angus strip-steak.

  2. This wine is a consistent great value in Napa Cabernet. I buy it all the time and I'm in their wine club. As far as VG's claim, I'm not aware of a pure Cab Franc that they make. ??
