2017 Treasure Hunter Mouth Magic Calistoga, Napa Valley Cabernet sauvignon
Calistoga, Napa Valley, California Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: California’s Wine industry became galactically important when a fairly unknown winery at the time from Calistoga in the Napa Valley won the Judgement of Paris in 1976. Heck, they made a move about it and everything. Well, why don’t you give a gander at a wine made in the same region?
Magic surrounds all of us. It swirls and moves around us and through us like a silent and eternal blizzard, but this blizzard isn’t made of frozen ice – this storm is made up of infinite pieces of fractured magic that creates the wonders of our world. There are some who are able to peak in to the world and to capture these magic sparks in their hands and craft them into precious items for use in the human world.
Well… it just so happens that I am one of those folks and I bottled some of that magic up and called it “Mouth Magic”. Abracadabra my friend and you’re welcome!
More sinewy than Jason Mamoa climbing a braided rope while wrestling a reticulated python, this wine is thick and meaty. “Mouth Magic” is ruled by flavors of spicy black fruit dipped in nutmeg and cocoa powder. It is silky and sleek with integrated and measured tannins with provide a herculean foundation of intensity and concentration.
