“gives up exuberant notions of blackcurrant pastilles, blackberry compote and stewed red plums with touches of kirsch, potpourri, fragrant earth and cigar box. Full-bodied and opulently fruited in the mouth, the powerful flavors are well framed by firm, ripe tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy.” – Wine Spectator. This Cab reminds us of some of the great wines from Dalla Valle or Gemstone, where Julien worked previously, at a price that is far less than some of its famed neighbors. If you want to taste a Napa Cabernet that delivers everything you love about this appellation with decadent and rich fruit, a powerful backbone of tannin and deep intensity on the palate – this is your wine!

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up exuberant notions of blackcurrant pastilles, blackberry compote and stewed red plums with touches of kirsch, potpourri, fragrant earth and cigar box. Full-bodied and opulently fruited in the mouth, the powerful flavors are well framed by firm, ripe tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy.
