The 2018 Rombauer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is deep purple with a bright fuschia rim. The nose is expressive, with aromas of red cherry and sage with a hint of violet, spice, and toast. The wine is full-bodied, packed with flavors of raspberry and black cherry, along with notes of violet and toast from the oak. Supple tannins carry through to a fine and smooth finish.
