2017 Duhig Napa Valley Cab, a gift from my former classmate and co-worker, Peter Duhig, on the the birth of my first grandchild..Peter and I go back > 50 years..No clue re whether he is related to the Duhigs who made this delightful wine..Tart cherries and cassis, tannins mild and in the background..As this appears to be their second vintage, no track record, small production, 125 cases...Drinking quite well now but see nothing to indicate that this wine will not hold up for another 5 yrs or so..but why wait?
