2016 Addax Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep and inky purplish ruby red. A bit raw on the nose but it is just a baby, having been bottled recently. A bit of tar and smoked cigars on the attack followed up by juicy black fruits and rich cinnamon paste. Heavy tannins (8.5/10) that need some time to mellow out with a full body. Rich and voluptuous with black and blue fruits, baking spices, black tea and gravel. Long and lingering finish. Lots of potential and patience will be rewarded.
Second stop on day three and finally made it to Napa. We tasted through some wines from Standard Deviation Wines and Addax Wines with Josh and Cheryl at Brasswood. Next up for Addax Wines is their Cabernet Sauvignon from the Tench Vineyard in Oakville. Made by Russell Bevan.
