WTN: Little Black...Cat

by David M. Bueker » Mon Jun 11, 2018 2:45 pm

NV EMH Cabernet Sauvignon Little Black - USA, California, Napa Valley (6/10/2018)
Hard to believe it had been almost five years since I last tasted this blend of 2011 (60%) and 2012 (40%). Back then it seemed more directly fruity. Last night it still had plenty of fruit, but had revealed a more classic form, with charm and grace, while retaining fun drinkability. The tannins were subtle, while providing ample structure. Clearly Napa Cabernet, it showed no hint of going over the top, rather staying well mannered and classy as the cat with a necktie on the label. Fruit, earth, and a bit of underbrush carried through from the aromas to the finish. Lovely wine for a relative "bargain" price in Napa Cabernet.
