“Textbook remains the gold standard for undiscovered boutique Napa Cabernets that taste like $100-$200, yet still available for far less. The 2017 Textbook ‘Mise En Place’ bottling is exceedingly satisfying and a dream discovery for collectors seeking the best undiscovered value from Napa. A bold and rich Cabernet, complex and layered, this shows deeply concentrated blackberry, plums, dark chocolate, espresso and alluring baking spices that are deftly melded together with plush tannins. When compared to pricier Oakville Cabs, this beauty is guaranteed to impress, especially given the value proposal. Enjoy tonight (decant 15 minutes) or anytime over the next 5-7 years, peaking 2023-2027 depending upon your palate.” - California Wine Advisors
