On the nose, this wine delivers delicious aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and elegant expressions of lavender alongside a touch of vanilla. Allomi Cabernet is concentrated upon entry with dense, but well-integrated tannins that provide a round, plush mouthfeel. Layers of juicy black fruit, notably black plum and black cherry, lead to elements of bittersweet chocolate supported by a subtle oak spice that adds to the personality of the wine and reminds us why this is one of our most popular Napa offerings.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine delivers a robustly rich experience of lengthy appeal. Blended with 12% Petite Sirah, among other varieties, and aged in American oak, the palate shows a wealth of black cherry, cassis and blackberry around toasted oak and a hint of clove.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Allomi, coming from Pope Valley, was aged for 18 months in some old American oak, but all the new oak (25%) was French. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it features fresh, crunchy black fruit notes of black currants, blackberries and fresh plums with touches of menthol, spice box and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling black fruit and a lovely velvety texture with a lively burst of freshness coming through on the spice-laced finish. 80,000 cases were made.
