Aftermath Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Jim Kaplan used his wine-country connections to land him, arguably, on the best teams in the valley, John Truchard as Vineyard Manager, SF Chronicle's “Winemaker of the Year” Steve Matthiasson as Viticulturalist, and Dave Phinney (Orin Swift Cellars) as winemaker. If that’s not a formula for success, I don’t know what is. Sourced primarily from Stags Leap district, hints of sage and black olive are the backup singers to the blockbuster front-man of black fruits that we all relate to Dave Phinney’s style.
The Aftermath Cabernet Sauvignon offers savory aromas of herbs de Provence and thyme intermingled with fresh dark fruits of blackberry and cassis. The wine is ripe and open, with hints of oak and cedar carrying through to layers of dark fruit and a touch of black olive on the rich, layered palate. Medium to full in body, with supple tannins, it deftly balances fruit and structure to express the property's rocky hillside terroir.
