97Jeb Dunnuck

...nose of blueberries, crème de cassis, white flowers, lead pencil, and candied violet-like aromas and flavors...doesn't pull any punches on the palate and is full-bodied, has incredible ripeness, beautiful purity and precision, and a great finish. The tannin quality here is remarkable, and it's another huge yet graceful wine from this team that ticks all the rich boxes.

95Vinous / IWC, explosive wine...possesses superb textural intensity and persistence. Super-ripe dark cherry, kirsch, rose petal and cinnamon are beautifully layered in this sumptuous, racy Cabernet Sauvignon from Dakota Shy.

91James Suckling

Currant and blackberry aromas with chocolate and hazelnut. Full-bodied and layered with chewy yet round tannins that are soft and succulent. Flavorful finish, but not overdone.


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.
