Memento Mori's mission is to produce the best Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. They source from only the best vineyards and have one of the most talented winemakers on the planet. Every vintage has a singular goal to craft the best product possible. They don't ever cut corners. Ever.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is aged 22 months in 100% new French oak. An opaque purple hue matches the incredibly dense layered dark fruit of this powerful wine. Blackberry, boysenberry, plumb, cassis and mocha aromas are followed by subtle notes of anise, tobacco, and baking spice. A deeply structured palate with graceful tannins and an inordinately lingering finish with wet stone and mint as a parting aromatic gift. This vintage is beautiful in its infancy but is clearly built for aging.
