These Post Parade releases are made by Thomas Rivers Brown. The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Stretch Drive is a forward, medium to full-bodied beauty loaded with notes of darker berry fruits, chocolate, tobacco, and graphite. It’s texture, mouth-filling and undeniably delicious.
The 2017 Stretch Drive expresses a powerful energy and dynamic character in every aspect. The wine has a gorgeous purple-red hue in the glass. Aromatic notes suggest macerated raspberries, lilac, mint, and crushed rock. On the palate there is a decadent fruit core noted by plum and blackberry, complimented by earthier notes of cocoa, lavender, and cedar. The mouthfeel of the wine is tender from the deep fruit center and framed with a supple tannin structure providing a nice architecture all the way through to the light, airy finish.
