About 101 Barrels 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Here's a wine created by two friends who are huge fans of Napa Valley Cabernet. They decided one day that since they loved it so much that they had to try to make one themselves. They also knew that since so much good juice was flowing in the Valley these days that if they looked hard enough they could very likely track down some that was first class. Well, they were right and 101 Barrels born. They managed to acquire, blend and age exactly 101 barrels of prime Napa Valley Cab, producing just over 2500 cases, a pittance when compared to any of the big name producers.
The story continues, that they knew good Cab, they knew how to make and bottle good Cab. What they didn't know is how to market good Cab. That's where we came in. After tasting this primo quality Cab we made a lowball offer that to our surprise they accepted! So here it is ripe, lush Napa Valley Cab at a remarkable price. It's even got an endorsement from a note sommelier.
Martin Sheehan-Stross, Advanced Sommelier had this to say "An elegant and lifted style of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, one where both the grape variety and terrior are allowed to shine through. The nose is driven by red currant and bay leaf tones while the palate gives a slightly darker feel. The fine tannins drive the long finish of this layered, complex wine." He scored it 95 points, who are we to argue? One of the best Napa Cab deals you'll come across in long time, Don't miss it!
