Review: 2016 Black Stallion Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
This 2016 release from Napa’s Black Stallion Estate Winery is an iconic expression of Napa cabernet, enduringly fruit-forward, exuding heavy notes of currants and dark chocolate amidst a slurry of mixed spices. Lush to the point of opulence, it leans heavily on the fruit, with notes of blueberry and blackberry — all chocolate-coated — lingering on the finish. Fully expected, but a solid value.
