TN: 2017 Riverain Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard

  • 2017 Riverain Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard - USA, California, Napa Valley, Oakville (2/2/2021)
    Tuesday night, and the work day was a grind. Warm this up from cellar temperature, then the sparks fly. Rich, plummy fruit, spice, cedar, it’s all there in a structured, stylish package. Given the pedigree of vineyard and winemaker, not to mention the final product, it’s a legitimate value in the array of high-end Napa Cabernet.

I purchased a Berserker Day three-pack of the 2018 version. My fingers are crossed that it is not too “big” for my palate.

I am not generally a “modern Napa Cab” guy if that helps. This is a little bigger than I normally drink, but it’s not in any way over the top.

Thanks David, hope you are well.

It’s a lot bigger than what I normally drink, but the fruit is always so pure and fresh and the oak so restrained that it works for me.

thanks for the checkpoint, still sitting on all mine!

I can only comment on the ‘13-‘15 vintages, but this is top 5 of Napa cabs that I’ve had. Every bottle has been very enjoyable
