About Grand Napa 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, Napa Valley
Another Killer Cab from Grand Napa Vineyards, located in the heart of Rutherford, near the foot of Mt. St. John in the Mayacamas mountain range. Their mission is to create outstanding wines from Napa Valley. They grow Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and implement artisan techniques to produce distinctive wines. Winemaker, Dwight Bonewell, sources the fruit from the best vineyards in Napa Valley, including some of its other most prestigious sub-appellations. For this wine the fruit was sourced from not only Rutherford but also Yountville and St. Helena. Fermentation is in open-top 1 ton fermenters with maceration lasting 3 weeks for good, deep extraction. The wine was aged a full two years in 60% new Seguin Moreau French oak barrels and 40% neutral (4+ years old) French oak barrels adding complexity, backbone and nuance.
Jeb Dunnuck scored this 92 points saying "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon offers terrific crème de cassis, crushed violets, candle wax, and hints of sappy herbs as well as a beautifully textured, layered style on the palate. It's the star of the show from this team, has terrific purity of fruit, and should drink nicely for over a decade."
James Suckling scored this 92 points saying "A red with aromas and flavors of blueberries, currants and lemon rind. Full body. Plenty of fruit with a spicy, hot-stone finish. 86% cabernet sauvignon and 14% merlot. Drink or hold."
