2016 Stewart Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
This full-bodied, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon begins with notes of cardamom and cinnamon on the nose. Flavors of blueberry, blackcurrant, and blackberry are beautifully layered on the palate and lead into a unique, subtle hint of cumin. The finish is accented with flavors of mocha and is refined by the smooth French oak. Decant and drink now, or cellar through 2031.
