Next was the Cabernet Sauvignon from O…

2012 Gibbs Cabernet Sauvignon Obsidian Block St. Helena, Napa Valley, California Next was the Cabernet Sauvignon from Obsidian Block which is actually located on the Gibbs Estate. Wine was a deep crimson red. Nose had some interesting characteristics of some greenery and dust. Once it started to open up there was something a little dirty like moldy cheese, baking spices and undertones of dark berries. The palate changed quite a bit between day one and day two. On day one there were slight prunes and candied fruit just before the finish. On day two that wore off to light red berries with slightly more acidity and moderate tannins (5/10). Body was moderate and thinned out right before the moderate dry and acidic finish. Just wanted to note that this had a decent amount of Petit Verdot in the blend, around 16%. Another great wine from Gibbs Napa Valley, we would love to hopefully try out their reserve one day after seeing this great single vineyard Napa Cabernet. Definitely a great QPR/Value wine! Rating: 88+ Price: $$ – Provided as a sample from the estate. Sells for $25.99 from the Estate. @gibbs.nv #gibbs #gibbsnapavalley #cabernetsauvignon #petitverdot #solidqpr #valuewine #obsidianblock #sthelena #napavalley #sampletasting #millennialdrinkers
