Overlooking Lake Hennessey, Pritchard Hill and the towns of Rutherford and St. Helena, the Kuleto Winery property is wild, remote, beautiful and private. 82 individual estate vineyard blocks make up this extraordinary mountaintop estate. Kuleto Estate wines are 100% estate-grown with Cabernet Sauvignon on the hillside vineyards between 900 –1,300 feet. Purists covet hillside-grown grapes for the exacting and stressful conditions that produce incomparable concentration and complexity.
James Suckling fell for the depth, “Plenty of blackberry, blueberry and violet aromas follow through to a medium to full body, firm and chewy tannins and a focused, linear finish. Very well done. Drink in 2020.” This rich tradition yields wines of soft texture and suppleness. Under $40 for mountain fruit overlooking Lake Hennessey and Pritchard Hill!
