STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Sequoia Grove, founded in 1979, is a family-owned winery in Rutherford, Napa Valley’s prestigious Cabernet Sauvignon appellation. Sequoia Grove has long been recognised for its commitment to crafting wines that emphasise finesse and balance from its Estate vineyards as well as through decades-long relationships with top Napa Valley growers.
This is a serious expression of Napa Valley. It shows classic rich, dark blackberry and cherry fruit with peppercorn tones and a touch of vanilla. Smooth tannins, impeccable balance and a long lingering finish.
Reductive, this wine opens in soy, tobacco and cedar. With a grippy backbone of tannin, it offers dense, rounded layers of black fruit that complement the earthiness. Virginie Boone. 90 Points - October 2021
