RATINGS

92James Suckling

Alluring aromas of dried blueberries, currants, cloves and smoked meat...full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Flavorful cooked-fruit and savory character.

90Wine Enthusiast

Reductive, this wine opens in soy, tobacco and cedar. With a grippy backbone of tannin, it offers dense, rounded layers of black fruit that complement the earthiness.

90Jeb Dunnuck

...rock-solid, with lots of cassis and mulberry fruits mixed with candied flowers, spice, and vanilla-like nuances...rich and medium to full-bodied, with solid overall balance and ripe tannins...

PRODUCER

Sequoia Grove

Sequoia Grove is a 22-acre estate in Rutherford, in Napa Valley. It was founded in 1980 by the brothers Jim and Steve Allen. Today the estate is part of the Kobrand international wine and spirits conglomerate. Sequoia makes Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and a Bordeaux style blend called Cambium.

REGION

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,

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.
