RARECAT Old Toll Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage: 2016

 
OUR GOAL
We love elegant Cabernets that are regal in balance, marked by complex aromas that make you dream. The goal of our Old Toll Cabernet Sauvignons are a wine rich in elegance, deep in flavor, with tannins hidden in the background that will support these flavors for many years to come. We have three Old Toll Hillside vineyards in Napa Valley: Calistoga, Spring Mountain and Canon Creek.
 
PROFILE: Old Toll Spring Mountain
Aromatics that are deep and rich with delicious layers of red and black fruits, prune, raspberry, black cherry, blueberry, coriander, licorice, and cocoa.  You’ll find velvet in the mouth with a mouth watering, lingering finish.
