Cabernet Sauvignon

Widely accepted as one of the world’s best varieties. Cabernet sauvignon is often blended with cabernet franc and merlot. It usually undergoes oak treatment. Food pairings: best with simply prepared red meat. Districts: cabernet sauvignon is planted wherever red wine grapes grow except in the Northern fringes such as Germany. It is part of the great red Médoc wines of France, and among the finest reds in Australia, California and Chile. Typical taste in varietal wine: full-bodied, but firm and gripping when young. With age, polyphenols polymerize: the grip fades away. The rich currant qualities of the Cabernet Sauvignon wine change to that of pencil box. Bell pepper notes remain.

    Size 750ML


    Bright medium ruby. Slightly reduced aromas and flavors of blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Juicy, intense and rather cool, with enticing violet lift.

    Winemaker Notes Though still in its youth, this is a wonderfully aromatic and fragrant wine, with vibrant, lifted aromas of spearmint, blackcurrant, violets, graham cracker crumbs and loganberry. On the palate blackberry and blueberry flavors mingle with cocoa and cola notes. Though the tannins impart a touch of youthful dryness, decanting reveals this wine’s classic Cabernet character, with a lovely structure, generous mouth-filling flavors and a long, satisfying finish.

    TASTING NOTES

    The 2014 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon opens with vivid aromas of rich, ripe blackberry fruit, espresso, lavender and subtle licorice spice. The mouthfeel is plush with a very firm structure. This versatile wine has supple blueberry and black berry fruit notes accented by dark chocolate and a lingering, smooth finish.

    WINEMAKING

    To maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard, each is monitored carefully through the vinification process. Extended maceration created larger tannins to enhance the lush mouthfeel of the blend and extracted a maximum of color, aromas and flavors. The wines were then aged in French oak barrels (25 percent new) for 16 months and underwent malolactic fermentation for further development of texture and mouthfeel.

    Size 750ML


    The Wine Enthusiast: 96 points (note: rating from 2009 vintage, please call store to inquire about current in-stock vintage) A dramatic wine, authoritative in tannins, bone dry and noble. Withholds its best under a cloak of astringency, but already shows its mountain terroir in the complexity of its structure and deep, intense blackberry, currant, blueberry and dried herb flavors. Should develop bottle complexities for at least a decade and probably longer. Learn More

    2009 Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Ornellaia

    $109.00

    Size 375ML


    The 2009 Ornellaia caresses the palate with layers of seamless, radiant fruit. Sweet red berries, mocha, flowers, new leather and spices are some of the many notes that are layered in this sumptuous, totally beautiful wine. The 2009 stands out for its silky tannins and phenomenal overall balance. This is one of those wines that will probably enjoy a long drinking window. In one of my blind tastings, the 2009 made a very eloquent case for itself as the wine of the vintage. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. In 2009 winemaker Axel Heinz used the highest percentage of Cabernet Franc ever in Ornellaia and gave the wine less time in oak, both with the goal of preserving as much freshness as possible. 97 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate Learn More

    $175.99

    Size 750ML


    Pulido Walker Cabernet Sauvignon "Melanson Vineyard" Napa Valley 2012 Sold out all over, we loved it and we bought a few extra for our clients 2012 Pulido-Walker Cabernet Sauvignon Melanson Vineyard Even more compelling is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Melanson Vineyard, which comes from high on Pritchard Hill at a 1,400 foot elevation. A killer Cabernet, it reveals copious aromas of blueberry liqueur, graphite, blackberry, licorice, incense and forest floor. Full-bodied, long, rich and even more complex and deeper than the Panek Vineyard cuvee, it should drink well for at least two decades. This is a very impressive start-up. Thomas Brown is the consulting winemaker for these two impressive Cabernet Sauvignon debut releases. MELANSON VINEYARD Between boulders clinging stubbornly to the steep slopes of Pritchard Hill, the Melanson Vineyard sits east of Oakville among some of the most highly regarded and closely held vineyard properties in the Napa Valley. Vines grow at elevations from 1,100 to 1,380 ft. above sea level, in fractured serpentine and clay soils laden with igneous and seabed rock. Melanson’s southwestern exposure is a distinct advantage, especially at elevations that translate to later bud break and harvest. Solar radiation is magnified at this altitude, while variations between high and low temperatures are moderated. The result is mountain fruit with thicker skins and higher tannins. The ink-black, super-concentrated berries are powerfully expressive of the site, with pronounced granite minerality. The higher tannins give the wine more structure with less weight on the palate and excellent aging potential. Vineyard Facts Appellation: St. Helena, Napa Valley Site: 10.5 acres on Pritchard Hill, adjacent to Colgin Estate Elevation: 1,100–1,380 ft. Soil Composition: Fractured serpentine and clay with igneous and seabed rock Planted: 1999 Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Clones: 7 and 337 Learn More

    2008 Seaver Vineyards Diamond Mountain District "GTS"" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon "

    $349.94

    Size 750ML


    2008 Vintage Winemaker’s Notes 2008 is the best year we have ever seen for Diamond Mountain. The naturally small crop coupled with an early start to the vintage produced wines with completely ripe, resolved tannins for the first time in recent memory. The vintage in general definitely favors the hills where the heat both helped to get things ripe earlier but also tempered the really hot days with elevation. As we sat down to blend the 2008 GTS, we were struck by how consistently good all three Cab lots were. In the end, putting everything together made the best wine so for the first time ever we will only offer one bottling. Extraction is never an issue with Diamond Mountain wines and this is no exception. Black to the rim, the color hints at the concentration. More effusive than any previous vintage, the nose opens with notes of purple and blue fruit, pain grille, bittersweet chocolate and espresso roast. Sweet tannin helps to frame the blackberry, cherry, and kirsch fruit components on the palate with some lively acidity coming up in the end to lengthen the finish. This is one to drink now or hold (a nice option for a Diamond Mountain wine) and a quality that speaks to the greatness of the vintage. Thomas Rivers Brown Learn More

    2011 Vintage Winemaker’s Notes On the whole, 2011 was the toughest, most challenging vintage in recent memory. Early rain, late rain and a wide spread botrytis outbreak wreaked havoc with many sites. Everyone, regardless of location, required expert farming and precise attention to detail. Without it, the vintage could have been a total loss. As it so often happens, location was paramount. Fortunate sites in 2011 were either upvalley or high atop the hills with great exposure, like Seaver. Being near the top of Diamond Mountain, we avoided the valley floor fogs that plagued early October. The shallow soils kept everything dry and intact until we were able to harvest perfectly ripe fruit that required minimal sorting. The 2011 GTS Estate is slightly brooding as one would expect from a young mountain wine. The fine tannins grab just slightly upon entry leading to blue and black fruits with remarkable depth and purity. The mouthfeel and texture, which are hallmarks of the Estate, are front and center once again. The fruit remains highlighted as the acidity keeps the wine fresh and long through the finish. Decant if drinking near-term. The NLS, formerly known as Nancy’s Fancy, is the more approachable of the offerings, given in large part to the healthy dose of Clone 7 this wine receives. Dusty and red fruited, structured by lithe natural acidity, one is struck by the completeness of the wine at this early stage. Drink now – 2024. Thomas Rivers Brown Learn More
