Cabernet Sauvignon | 750ml | ABV 14.6%
This wine is called "Mise en place" to reflect the preparation and diligence exercised in the vineyards and winery. The winemakers believe it is a "textbook" example of this noble variety grown in the outstanding appellation of Oakville District AVA. With their Mise en place Cabernet Sauvignon, Textbook Wines has emerged as the gold standard for undiscovered boutique Napa Cabernets that is remarkably serious-tasting, deeply satisfying and a must-have for collectors looking for an undiscovered value. The 2015 vintage soars from the glass with captivating aromas of potpourri and melted dark chocolate that leads to a luscious, deftly-balanced experience featuring layers of black fruit complemented by seamlessly integrated, creamy French oak and firm tannins.
