Sequoia Grove Winery, Napa Valley (California) Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

($46):  Again, an over-sized bottle accurately predicts the size of the wine.  Ripe dark fruit flavors and even a hint of chocolate lead in this robust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.  A few savory notes — spice and herbs — peek out as it sits in the glass.  Its 14.8 percent stated alcohol appears as a bit of warmth in the finish.  Its lushness is very appealing and the silky suave texture makes it easy to enjoy with a grilled steak for those who embrace this style of Cabernet.
