There are aromas of cherry, toffee, coffee, fennel, graham cracker and roses.The flavors include black cherry, vanilla, dark chocolate, and orange zest. It is seductive and delicious but also a serious wine with great aging potential.
2011 Napa Valley Cabernet
The 2011 Euclid Cabernet is from the Clark Claudon Vineyard on the North Eastern side of Howell Mountain at 800 to 1000 ft elevation. The vintage was marked by a long cool growing season allowing a long hang time and even ripening of the fruit.
The small berry size led to very good concentration in the resulting wine. The fruit was handpicked in the early morning. Fermentation was at high temperature allowing for good extraction of flavor and body. The Euclid 2011 Cabernet is aged in 50 % new French oak and the remainder in once used French Oak barrels from coopers that we know well for 24 months.
The wine is delicate and balanced with good acidity. It has aromas of fresh flowers, black pepper, tobacco and black currant. Aromas from the barrels include dark roasted coffee, toffee, and milk chocolate.
The wine has a silky juicy texture with flavors of caramel, vanilla, tobacco, and a long finish with a hint of bitter chocolate and fine tannins. The wine is showing very well now and will last for years to come. The wine is unfiltered.
