Aftermath 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The 2016 Aftermath Cabernet Sauvignon is darkly colored and extremely flavorful. The nose is redolent with ripe dark fruit, such as cassis and blackberry, and there are hints of sage, anise and fir. The wine is medium to full bodied with bright acidity to balance the fruit and noticeable minerality on the mid-palate. The fruit lingers in a long finish with a hint of slate/graphite (reminiscent of what is referred to as "Rutherford dust").
