Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Knights Valley, CA
Tucked into the foothills of Mount Saint Helena on the remote eastern edge of Sonoma County, Knights Valley experiences a moderated climate, offering a longer and later growing season that develops dark fruit aromatics. The 2014 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is bold with black forest fruit and spiced plum, offering undertones of roasted coffee and crushed rock. Caramel and anise come through on the palate accompanied by broad tannins and a rich and persistent finish.

Cliff Lede Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Stags Leap$85.00
99 points, RP “…Flirting with perfection, this wine boasts blueberry and blackberry notes, spring flowers a hint of charcoal and subtle toast, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning concentration.”Intense blackberry liqueur and espresso bean develop into rose and truffle oil aromas as the wine opens. Creamy and opulent, flavors of semi-sweet chocolate, mocha, and plum layer the front and mid-palate. A beam of fresh minerality (archetypal Stags Leap District character) frames the long silky finish. Decanting is recommended. Revisit over 24 hours as new layers develop with time.
Oakville Cross Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Jack and Ruthie Rydman moved to Oakville in 1973, and in 1999 they planted two acres of their property on Oakville Cross Road with 2100 Cabernet Sauvignon vines. The vineyard backs up to Silver Oak, so you know they’re in prime Cabernet territory!
The Oakville AVA produces many of the most prized Cabernets in the Napa Valley. As expected, their vines produced exceptional fruit which they sold to nearby wineries. In 2005, because the fruit was of such high quality, they decided to go into the wine business themselves. Their premiere release has been met with rave reviews making their decision to make the leap from grower to vintner all the more sweet.
The signature Oakville Cross 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has spent two years aging in French, Hungarian and American oak barrels. Harvested in mid-October, this Cabernet Sauvignon is ripe with vibrant plum and cherry with a hint of vanilla and anise. Long soft finish — ready to drink now, will age gracefully 10+ years. They use the glass closure, the Vino-Seal. Sexy, cool and efficient. Does not impart any flavors to the wine. Doesn’t dry out or change shape, ever. Perfect for a great great Napa Cab!
