Peter Paul 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
It’s become instructive–and enjoyable—to consider this newest Cabernet Sauvignon release alongside recent vintages. If 2015 was fun and fleshy, and 2016 was deep and daring, 2017 is brimming with confidence. Like a sinewy cross-fitter built from struggle, this wine fully challenges the perception of a "down vintage." Soaring aromatics are the first striking thing you'll notice. Next, fine-tuned layers of red & black fruits, roasted herbs and spices, unsweetened cocoa develop in the glass with a particularly beautiful potency. With time in the glass, the touch of austerity yields to a delicious and cerebral complexity. Drink over 5-8 years – decant if opening before 2022.
