Neal Family Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Neal Family Vineyards|
This bottling reminds us of some of our best vintages with comparisons to 2001 and 2002. Coming from a warm and therefore ripe vintage, this year's Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of cocoa, cassis and dark berry fruit plus hints of incense, earth and cedar notes from new French oak. As is our tradition, this is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with very dark color and a nice concentration of tannin that carries with it a firm, complex mouthful of flavors. The cherry (and surprisingly blueberry fruit) flavors sweetened by a chocolate character make the texture very mouthwatering. We hold the wine in barrel and in bottle longer than most Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon until convinced the texture has evolved and is ready to drink. This is a wine that will be greatly enhanced with decanting at a young age as evidenced by showing even better the day after opening. Additional cellaring will further improve the complexity and structure.
Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon 2018Deep ruby in color, the 2018 Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon expresses aromas of fresh black currants and cherries accompanied by subtle smoky notes and dried spices. On the palate, this lavish powerful wine is layered with juicy blackberry, ripe cherry, vanilla bean and brown butter. It's full-bodied and rich, balanced by a touch of bright acidity and firm polished tannins.
Bonanza Lot 2 Cabernet SauvignonA California Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonanza is produced by Chuck Wagner, owner and winemaker of Caymus Vineyards. It reflects the "bonanza" of the great state of California - the discovery of land where delicious Cabernet can be farmed. Calling back to a time when good wine with dinner was a simple pleasure, Bonanza features flavors of dark berries, vanilla and toasty bread with silky tannins.
Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2018The core of Faust comes from our Coombsville Estate as well as from our vineyards in Rutherford and Oakville. We also source grapes from hillside and cooler regions of the Napa Valley. This wine jumps out of the glass with aromas of fresh black cherry and plum. Layers of savory cherry compote, earth, cedar and graphite are rounded out by a long finish with hints of dark chocolate, balanced acidity and minerality.
Goldschmidt Hilary Goldschmidt Charming Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2016Deep garnet-purple; concentrated aromas of chocolate and black cherry alongside notes of cinnamon and hazelnut. The entry of this wine is juicy with a silky-smooth texture that builds through the mid-palate. Blackberry and black current flavors are supported with well-integrated oak. Nicely balanced and shows the fresh acidity on the finish that Oakville is known for.
Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016The density of the deep-garnet color hints at the extraction in this wine. Aromas of spiced cherries dominate the alluring nose, accompanied by cassis, dark plum, and a savory touch of anise. Smooth and juicy on the entry, the palate builds quickly with full mouthfeel and bright acidity. There is a clean elegant progression of lush plum, bright cherry, tart red currant all riding on abundant but not overpowering tannin. The spiced cherries make a reappearance late in the finish. Sit with this one for a while, get to know it, and enjoy the evolution. Elegantly powerful now, this will be a real stunner in 10-15 years.
