We love B cellars Cabernets for a kind of effortless voluptuousness they display. The Wine Advocate flipped for all of their 2016’s and loved this one’s “hedonistic notions of crème de cassis, kirsch, mocha and black licorice with hints of camphor, lilacs, cigar box and black tea. Very big, concentrated and powerful in the full-bodied mouth.”
Bending the traditional rules of Napa Valley, this unique winery places an emphasis on sourcing and harvesting grapes from dozens of high-quality terroirs, then selecting and blending only the best lots with an equal emphasis on creativity and personal care. Throw in gunslinging winemaker Kirk Venge, and you'll start to understand why this juggernaut has garnered the sort of attention that the major critics have given them. Continually walking the line between honoring traditions and techniques of the past and a contemporary artistic blending approach, their wines showcase the unique synergy of combining fruit from all over Napa Valley. The proprietors of B cellars are understandably pleased with what's been happening with their baby, and by the looks of it, this kid is growing up right before our eyes!
