2015 FISTICUFFS “NAPA VALLEY” CABERNET SAUVIGNON
One of my favorite results that comes from tasting a new wine, is one that makes me do a double-take simply because the taste exceeds my expectations for the price. The 2015 Fisticuffs Napa Valley Cabernet made me do just that. Performing well above its weight class for value Napa Cabernet, this undisputed champion hailing from Napa Valley dances inside a tightly wound core, threaded with chocolate covered cherries, blackcurrants, unground coffee bean and cedar spice. Trained by talented winemaker Rob Lawson, a legend who while managing Napa Wine Company, helped craft such notables as Bryant Family, Colgin, & Pahlmeyer. He’s also responsible for helping shape the 2007 Kapcscandy “Grand Vin” which scored a perfect 100 Points from Robert Parker!
Conditioned with 22 months in oak, this classic Napa Valley Cabernet sports a dense texture, laced with abundant dark fruits and mouth coating richness. Emerging from several carefully selected vineyard sites, this wine is beautifully complex, and displays tremendous length. At under forty per bottle, this is pound for pound, one of the best Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons.
