James Suckling Review
This blend of 85 per cent cabernet sauvignon with touches of petite sirah, malbec, petit verdot and merlot, has a ripe-plum and blackberry core that delivers sweetly attractive and fresh into the finish. Drink or hold.
The Allomi Vineyard is relatively young, and it has one thing that Cabernet Sauvignon surely loves: some heat, and a long, lingering growing season that allows fruit to ripen slowly on the vine, gaining complexity and layers of flavor. On the nose, this wine delivers intriguing vegetal aromas with hints of mushroom and forest floor. On the palate, Allomi Cabernet is known to deliver moderate, well-integrated tannins and a round, plush mouthfeel making it one of our most popular Napa offerings. A wonderful brightness of raspberry and red plum delight the mid-palate, and these flavors are supported by a subtle oak spice that adds to the personality of the wine.
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petite Sirah, 4% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot. 2% Merlot
