2015 Janzen 'Cloudy's' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

$124.95

Kirk crafted this MASSIVE 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, from Claus Janzen’s 2-acre home vineyard, high above the valley floor. Look for raspberry and black cherry liqueur, anise, crushed blackcurrants, mocha, scorched earth, tar, and wet stone. A long-time Bounty Hunter favorite. You can’t go wrong here.

Claus Janzen doesn't shy away from taking the road less traveled. He originally made his mark on the local wine scene with the wholly unique "Bacio Divino," arguably Napa's most successful Tuscan-inspired red. When he moved that project into the world of Cabernet, he did so with the philosophy that it would be the vineyards rather than the blend that would drive the program's success. So, like many other notable Cabernet producers, Claus turned to vine guru Andy Beckstoffer for fruit, and the rest as they say, is history. With the help of lauded winemaker Kirk Venge, he has created a range of Napa Cabernets with completely unique personalities, and the critics have taken note. He's even dialed in a sensational Pinot Noir from a serious vineyard down south. Some of our favorite wines year in and year out, you'd be wise to pay attention to this lauded producer.
