RATINGS

98The Wine Advocate

...reveals notes of spice cake, star anise and cloves over a core of warm plums, red and black currants and black olives, plus a hint of iron ore... ...taut, firmly structured palate gives up vibrant fruit and a long, mineral-laced finish.

97James Suckling

Amazing aromas of blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrants and lead pencil. So aromatic. Dense and full-bodied but so dialed in for a 2015.

97+ Jeb Dunnuck

...the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon. Pauillac-like notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, crushed rocks, and cedar all emerge from this full-bodied, focused, gorgeously pure 2015 that tastes like a great vintage of Latour...

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,
