RATINGS

93The Wine Advocate

...sings of warm cassis, preserved plums and blueberry compote with touches of Chinese five spice, sandalwood and tobacco with a waft of menthol. Full-bodied, the palate delivers a beautiful velvety texture, nicely framing the generous black and blue fruits, finishing long and spicy.

92Vinous / IWC

...plump and juicy... Sweet red cherry and plum fruit are nicely pushed forward...

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena

St. Helena AVA is at the northern end of Napa Valley just north of Rutherford and south of Calistoga. It is a relatively warm climate thanks to the Mayacamas Mountains on its western edge, which protect it from Pacific Ocean fog. Out of the 9,000 acres in the appellation, some 1,500 are under vine. The principal grapes grown in St. Helena are the Bordeaux grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. St. Helena is considered prime wine producing territory, and it was one of the first important wine producing regions in northern California. The legendary Charles Krug founded his winery just north of the town of St. Helena in 1873, and today the appellation is home to many prestigious producers, including Abreu, Grace Family and Spottswoode.
