RATINGS

94Wine Spectator

A classy effort, rich, refined, pure and elegant, offering tiers of blackberry, wild berry, floral and spice aromas, supported by spicy, cedary oak and fine-grained tannins. Ends with a burst of mocha and black licorice.

94Vinous / IWC

...yields a rich, sumptuous Cabernet built on pure texture and volume. Blue and black fruit, smoke, spices and menthol meld into the creamy, layered finish. This is a very strong showing from Revana and winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown.

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.

TYPE

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.
