93Jeb Dunnuck

Notes of blackcurrants, chocolate, crushed rocks, and a touch of leafy herbs all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, textured, elegant Cabernet that shines for its balance and classical style. The tannins here are beautifully polished, and it has plenty of upfront appeal...

91The Wine Advocate

...nose of plum preserves, black currant cordial and fried herbs with hints of iron ore, tobacco and new leather plus a hint of charcoal...full-bodied, firm and chewy with muscular fruit and an earthy finish.

91Vinous / IWC

...a gorgeous wine. Ripe and juicy...has a good bit of freshness and aromatic lift to balance things out. Raspberry jam, spice, mint, flowers and licorice add layers of nuance to this attractive and expressive Cabernet...


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.
