RATINGS

99The Wine Advocate

...piney-herbal notes and combines them with redder, more vibrant fruit flavors, evocative of cherries and raspberries. Yet even with this greater freshness, the wine remains full-bodied, concentrated and velvety in feel, with a tremendously long finish.

98Vinous / IWC

All the elements are so impeccably balanced. Inky dark fruit, mocha, licorice, spice and leather are some of the many notes that pulse through the 2017.

97James Suckling

Incredible blackberries, blueberries and black cherries. Sandalwood, tile and terracotta. Sweet tobacco, too. A solid core of fruit here with tension and focus. Really framed and polished. Gorgeous. Savory finish.

97Jeb Dunnuck

Lots of truffle, sandalwood, and spicy wood characteristics...ripe tannins, notable balance, and medium to full-bodied richness.

96Wine Spectator

...gorgeous waves of loganberry, mulberry, cassis and plum fruit flavors that glide through, carried by copious yet polished and integrated tannins through the long, savory-, sweet tobacco– and alder-tinged finish.

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,
