 2013 Seavey 'Caravina' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Year in and year out, Seavey's "Caravina" barrel selection is one of the best deals going in Napa Valley Cabernet. And we taste it all. Parker calls this "outstanding, with a deep purple color, a sweet nose of chocolate, dusty, loamy soil notes, a touch of roasted herbs, silky tannins and a medium to full-bodied, very sexy and lush style." Structured and bold, drink this one around age 10!

One of Napa Valley's hidden gems, the Seavey estate is nestled back into the hills east of St. Helena. A throwback property with charming stone buildings and the feel of a working farm from a bygone era, it is nonetheless a formidable presence in the present day. Robert Parker has gone so far to write that, "there is a strong argument to be made that (Seavey) is the most underrated great Cabernet Sauvignon produced in Napa Valley." Under the winemaking direction of Philippe Melka - this was actually his first lead winemaking gig in Napa Valley - the wines have never been better. Possessing the ripeness and stuffing one would expect from Napa, there still is a sly tip of the cap to the Old World, logical given the proprietor Bill Seavey's love of Bordeaux and Philippe's roots there. This is "great stuff" worthy of your full consideration.
