65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 14% Merlot, then Petit Verdot & Malbec. All five of the (modern day) Bordeaux grapes used. Howell Mountain, Calistoga and St Helena fruit (all vineyards with reputations of making bold, dark, structured wine). Bullseye hit by Tether in making a rich, strong, lush and accessible Napa Cab style, at a relatively accessible price. All dark, sun-soaked, deep black berries/cherries with fragrant Indian spices, toasty barrel, vanilla bean and dark chocolate all over the place. This is a rock-solid Cab Sauv based blend recommendation for $50. The talented Anna Monticelli, winemaker and co-owner (with Napa broker/distributor/importer Kimberly Jones).
