2019 The Vice Cabernet Sauvignon Los Carneros "The Ram", USA, California, Napa, Carneros, Wine Review
This was bottled and released to celebrate the Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl appearance (and victory). Los Carneros is Spanish for The Ram. This is a cooler climate than much of Napa and while the area is not know for Cabernet, this one is a very nice example of a cooler climate Cab. Unfiltered and unfined. Purple in color, opaque and bright. Ruby at the rim. The nose is dusty with black cherries, cassis, slight rhubarb and sandalwood. Medium to full bodied. Lovely sinewy texture. Medium tannins. On the palate, nice black cherries, plums with a chalky/chocolate note. Long finish.
