The 2011 growing season in Napa Valley got off to a late start. Rains in the spring and a temperate summer made for a long, mild season. Fortunately, fruit in St. Helena was able to ripen just before the rains set in at the end of October. The 2011 Anomaly Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon reflects that growing season: cool, crisp, and classic. The wine is incredibly dark and offers scents of lavender, rose oil, toasted almonds, and anise. The palate is fresh and vibrant; it reminds us of dark cherry, blackberry, and pomegranate. The wine is smooth throughout the palate; round, chewy tannins lend the wine structure and length.
