Pulido-Walker 2017 Melanson Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Recent vintages of the Pulido~Walker Melanson Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon exhibit a broad mix of savory and herbal elements with black fruit. The 2017 is much more red-fruit focused, harkening back to the fresh taste profile of earlier vintages. This refreshing red-fruit quality, accentuated by the heat, is clearly the overarching characteristic of the 2017 Napa Valley vintage.

Jeb Dunnuck - 97 Points
"Even better, I suspect the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon might be a candidate for the wine of the vintage with 4-5 years of bottle age. From a vineyard on Pritchard Hill, just across from Colgin, and 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, this inky colored beauty offers loads of blueberry and blackcurrant liqueur-like fruits as well as lots of spice, flowery incense, and subtle herbal undertones. Textbook Cabernet on the nose, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, building tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and a great, great finish. It’s one of the few wines in the vintage that comes close to rivaling its 2015 and 2016 counterparts. The cellar will be your friend on this one, though, and a good 4-6 years of bottle age are warranted. Maturity: 2024 – 2044."
