Sequoia Grove, Napa Valley (California) Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

($40): This wonderfully refined mineraly Cabernet Sauvignon is a pleasure to drink now.  I’m certain it will gain complexity — though it has plenty now — and nuance with age, but the winemaking team at Sequoia Grove has polished the tannins so they provide necessary structure without a trace of astringency or roughness.  A lovely subtle bitter note in the finish reminds you that this is a top-notch Cabernet to be savored.
