“It shines for its purity and elegance just as much as its richness and depth and gives up medium to full-bodied notes of red and blue fruits, violets, and espresso roast. With silky, ultra-fine tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish, it tastes like it cost 2-3 times the price” – Jeb Dunnuck. Sourced from the famed Lewelling Ranch vineyard site that has vine growing history in the Valley back to the middle-late 1800’s, this is a classic over-achiever whose quality outshines the asking price. The Wine Advocate adds “Big, full, rich and seductive, it has a plush frame of velvety tannins and wonderful energy” and we agree! You would be hard-pressed to find another Napa Cab that delivers so much depth, complexity and pure drinking pleasure than this wine. We happily sourced this rare gem for you, now take our advice and buy a case of this outstanding Cabernet!

I loved the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Lewelling Ranch from winemaker Haley Wight, a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot that spent 20 months in 75% new French oak. It shines for its purity and elegance just as much as its richness and depth and gives up medium to full-bodied notes of red and blue fruits, violets, and espresso roast. With silky, ultra-fine tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish, it tastes like it cost 2-3 times the price
