The Wine Advocate is fully on-board with this release “Teucer Vineyard struts flamboyant notions of chocolate-covered cherries, black raspberries, kirsch and plum preserves with an undercurrent of blackcurrants, cedar chest, wilted roses and mossy bark plus a touch of espresso...finishing with epic length and depth and imparting an overall satisfying sense that defies descriptors. Just magic.” We absolutely flipped for this Coombsville-sourced Napa Cab and this new appellation now sits at the top of the pecking order as one of the best new vineyard sites in all of the Valley. Very little of this wine is produced and we have limited allocations available to sell, so stock up now. You will not be disappointed by this gem!

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Teucer Vineyard struts flamboyant notions of chocolate-covered cherries, black raspberries, kirsch and plum preserves with an undercurrent of blackcurrants, cedar chest, wilted roses and mossy bark plus a touch of espresso. Full-bodied, super concentrated yet perfectly balanced with a rock-solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, the palate reveals layer upon layer of black fruit and savory flavors, finishing with epic length and depth and imparting an overall satisfying sense that defies descriptors. Just magic.
