Pulido Walker Melanson Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
|Region||California, Napa Valley, St Helena|
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Melanson Vineyard (a site on the glamorous Pritchard Hill) is one of the strongest efforts I have tasted from that vintage. Attractive notes of black raspberries and blueberries intermixed with a background hint of oak are followed by a wine with a creamy, medium to full-bodied texture that cuts a savory, evolved, delicious swath across the palate. It can be drunk now and over the next decade.
