Hardin Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
90% Cab Sauv, 5% Cab Franc, 4% Merlot, and 1% Malbec.
Hardin Cabernet is sourced from several regions within Napa including some valley floor and a bit of hillside fruit. The latest bottling is 72% Oakville and 28% Calistiga fruit.
This "crazy value" Napa Cab was sourced from a couple of top "Cult" wineries in the Valley (SHHH...their wines sell for between $75-150/bot!). Deep, rich and plush with classic Napa Cab fruit, it drinks like a wine costing 2-3 times as much!
Deep, intense, plum, dark cherry and spice are prevelant right away on the nose and palate. But the signature of the vintage is then on full display with minerality, balancing structure and a vibrant, fresh core that lifts the fruit and carries the wine. A classic Napa Cab that will drink well for many years.
