93The Wine Advocate

...rambunctious notions of ripe blackberries, wild blueberries and red currant jelly scents plus hints of tapenade, lilacs and tilled soil. Full-bodied, richly fruited and with a gorgeous velvety texture, it has a lively backbone delivering great tension with lots of layers and a fragrant, earthy finish.

92Wine Spectator

...bright beam of cassis and damson plum notes laced with subtle tobacco and savory accents through the finish. Nice pure and streamlined wine with solid varietal character.

92James Suckling

...earthy and leafy character with notes of ripe plums and blackberries, spices, dark chocolate and mushrooms. Full-bodied with plush, velvety tannins...deep core of dark fruit. Rich and long-lasting.


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 Franc

This is a parent grape to Cabernet Sauvignon. It most likely originates from Basque country. It is an excellent blending grape, known for making the exquisite Cheval-Blanc. Franc is a little hardier on a vine than Sauvignon, but drinks smoothly at the table.
