2018 Cliff Lede High Fidelity, Napa Valley
Both grace and power define the 2017 High Fidelity and its youthful exuberance will charm the taster, as well. The Cabernet Franc leads the aromas with a procession of fresh tobacco leaves, white chocolate, fig paste, and black cherries. Close behind are the melted licorice, black currants, and sous-bois aromas. Full bodied and complete, the bouquet notes are echoed on the palate and the wine finishes with a dark and long lasting expression with remarkably fine tannin for the vintage.
