The 2016 Dog Day Cabernet opens with a powerful dark fruit nose. This theme is continued on the palate, where notes of blackberry, boysenberry, and cassis intermingle with tobacco leaf and a sprinkling of baking spices (namely cinnamon and nutmeg). A final note of cocoa powder propels forward the lingering finish. While ready to enjoy now, the grippy tannins will lend longevity to the wine, making this fruit-forward cab age-worthy for years to come. A portion of every bottle purchased supports the Valley Humane Society.
