Cave Dog 2016 Proprietary Red, Napa Valley

Add to Wishlist

A small-production gem from Napa Valley that we love recommending to Cab lovers.

Cave Dog Red is an honest-to-goodness Right Bank Bordeaux style from Michael Havens, one of our favorite winemakers and a name that should be instantly recognizable from Havens Winery. This new 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc blend is somewhat of a re-creation of Havens "Borriquot.” Made from the same vineyard as the Borriquot, it has the same intense aromatics and spice box nature, with fresh gingerbread, Bing cherry and dry-cured olive aromatics. Soft and velvety on the palate, with the plush, cassis-driven Merlot fruit adding dimension to the delicately spiced Cabernet Franc. A rock-solid offering that should turn heads with its tension and balance. While all the flavors will expand with bottle age, it is still a round, smooth-textured, delicious, gorgeous wine now.
