Here is a dynamite Napa Cab that you've probably never heard of. The Acre vineyard sites are rich in historical significance being situated on the land where in 1839 George Yount planted the first wine grapes in the Napa Valley. All of the vineyards sourced for Acre Cab have been farmed organically for over 20 years, well before it was fashionable, demonstrating enhanced wine quality on top of the ecological benefits. The Cabernet grapes for this 2012 came from the Pelissa Vineyard in Oakville, planted to the "BV 7" clone that contributed to the famed early Georges de Latour wines, and Mill Race vineyard in Yountville, a 20 year old vineyard adjacent to the mill channel used by Napa Valley's first vintner George Yount. This wine blends the two for a unique combination. 6% Petite Verdot and 3% Malbec are also blended in and the wine aged in 100% French oak barrels for 26 months. From a Napa Valley vintage called classic even perfect, this 2012 Acre Cabernet Sauvignon fulfills expectations with a super abundance of ripe, rich, even exotic fruit. Pomegranate, blueberry, black cherry, with subtle notes of baking spices and cedar in multiple layers of flavor that coat the mouth. The tannins are superfine and silky and the finish lingers. Limited.
