Wine Details & Tasting Notes

You might recall OG N.129 Napa Cabernet. In that release, I mentioned a particular Reserve Lot that we blended into the producers standard $75 Napa Cabernet. Today I am releasing the $100+ Reserve Cabernet lot (St. Helena and Rutherford fruit sources) which we further turbocharged with two killer lots of Rutherford Cabernet and St. Helena Merlot sourced from another high-end Napa producer. The result is a deep, palate-staining Cabernet with a seamless, chewy structure, perfectly-integrated oak and supple, vibrant fruit - never over-extracted. Its an absolute steal at $32/bottle.

Deep ruby with an opaque core. Focused layers of aromatic complexity featuring dried cherry, creme de cassis and dusty blackberry compote mingling with cedar, creme de cassis and leather. Supple and beautifully seamless on entry, well-supported with lively acidity and chewy, palate-staining tannins coated in blackberries and brown sugar with a vanilla bean top note. Medium-full-bodied (14.8% alc.) with juicy acidity and supple, nuanced, perfectly-ripe fruit, this is a beautifully-balanced, precise and powerful Cabernet Sauvignon that will age nicely over the next 10-15 years. A true Napa Valley Classic!
