Smith-Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Spring Mountain District, Napa Valley, CA, $48 (S) – Rating 93

Smith-Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon 2011With nearly every vintage I review, I state that Smith-Madrone Cabernet is one of the best Napa Cabs under $50. This wine is no exception. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry, blueberry,raspberry and brown spice. Dry farmed estate fruit, high on Spring Mountain gives this wine a lush mouth-feel with present acidity and supple tannins. Well integrated flavors of  black cherry, plum, blackberry and tobacco box with a little blueberry with pepper spice. Intriguing espresso and dark chocolate on long finish. Buy This Wine
