The bouquet is elegant and shows more red fruit aromas than dark fruit including raspberry and red currant. The aromas also show a hint of rose petal and graphite. The entry is lean with a medium to full bodied palate. This is a balanced wine throughout with a nice touch of tartness - including plum and cranberry. There are slightly spicy notes of oak as well as smokiness towards the finish. Dusty tannins complete this clean and pleasing finish. The Tedeschi Vineyard has great natural acidity which helps make this an excellent food wine. Today, it is somewhat rare to have a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon under 14% alcohol and this wine is at 13.5%
