Lush and inviting, featuring a warm and silky wave of plum and blackberry sauce flavors, infused with black tea and subtle tobacco notes. Echoes of licorice root and loam run through the finish, with the fruit hanging on nicely.



Revana Family Vineyard is in St. Helena, in Napa Valley. The estate was founded in 1997 by Madaiah Revana, a physician with a love of California Cabernet Sauvignon. The 9-acre vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. Heidi Barrett was the winemaker in charge of the debut 2001 vintage and Thomas Rivers Brown is winemaker now. Revana makes only one wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon, and it has already won accolades from wine writers and collectors. In 2010 Wine Spectator named Revana to the #4 spot in its list of 100 Top Wines of 2010.


United States, California, Napa Valley

Napa Valley AVA is the most famous winemaking region in the United States and one of the most prestigious in the world. With nearly 43,000 acres of vineyards and more than 300 wineries, it is the heart of fine wine production in the United States. Winemaking started in Napa in 1838 when George C. Yount planted grapes and began producing wine commercially. Other winemaking pioneers followed in the late 19th century, including the founders of Charles Krug, Schramsberg, Inglenook and Beaulieu Vineyards. An infestation of phylloxera, an insect that attacks vine roots, and the onset of Prohibition nearly wiped out the nascent Napa wine industry in the early 20th century. But by the late 1950s and early 1960s Robert Mondavi and other visionaries were producing quality wines easily distinguishable from the mass-produced jug wines made in California’s Central Valley. Napa Valley’s AVA was established in 1983, and today there are 16 sub-appellations within the Napa Valley AVA. Many grapes grow well in Napa’s Mediterranean climate, but the region is best known for Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay is also very successfully cultivated, and about 30% of the AVA’s acreage is planted to white grapes, with the majority of those grapes being Chardonnay,


Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
