About This Wine

A mix of red and black fruits with earthy notes of toasted spices. Blackberry and currant emerge on the palate framed by cocoa powder tannins. Persistent and concentrated, it will benefit from decanting or medium-term ageing.

"This is a generous, gentle cabernet with silken textures and warm, purple juiciness to its fruit. It finishes on smoky, tobacco-scented tannins, which carry some heat. Serve it cellar temperature with a steak."

Wines from Napa Valley

One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism. The Napa Valley started to bring worldwide recognition to California’s winemaking abilities after finding success in the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976. Both a Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon were submitted which bested several famous French labels in a blind tasting. These results cemented Napa’s reputation for being able to produce wines equal to that in quality of the very best from the Old World.

In red wines, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley today, covering half the land and commanding the highest prices per ton. Straight Napa Cabernet is one of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, a marvellous addition to any wine collection or cellar. With such high-quality Cabernet production, many winemakers also focus on creating fine Bordeaux blends. Other notable red wine varietals produced in the Napa include: Pinot Noir, Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Franc.

The most prominent whites from the Napa are Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
