...notes of saddle leather, rich, super-concentrated blackberry fruit, striking density, richness, and a connoisseur’s backwardness and profound richness...

PRODUCER

Delectus

Delectus is owned by Linda and Gerhard Reisacher, who began making wines in 1995 from sourced grapes in the Napa Valley. Linda had worked in the wine industry as a glass supplier and Gerhard, who grew up in Austria, is an eighth- generation winemaker. In Napa he worked for Monticello, Far Niente, Pine Ridge and Clos du Val before starting his own winery. In 2005 the couple bought 112 acres overlooking Knights Valley. Some 40 acres were planted. Delectus produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and several blends.

TYPE

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.
