About Napa Cellars 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Classic Collection, Napa Valley

Started by Rombauer back in the 80's Napa Cellars is now owned by the Trinchero Family Estate. As a result they are able to source premium Napa fruit from their almost 300 acres of estate vineyards in Napa Valley. That's really what makes this wine stand out and why it's so good. It's not just another Napa Cab but it's a Napa Cab with pedigree, quality and consistency, all at amazing value. The outstanding 2016 vintage brought beautifully ripe, complex grapes throughout Napa Valley. Sourcing for this Cab included prime sites in Atlas Peak, St. Helena, Oak Knoll and Rutherford. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon,10% Merlot, 2% Malbec, 2% Syrah and 1% Petit Verdot, grapes were hand-harvested in the cool morning. The fruit was hand-sorted, gently de-stemmed and lightly crushed. During an 12 to 21-day maceration period, the extraction of color and flavor were maximized and the tannins polished for a rich, supple mouthfeel. The new wine aged in 39% new French oak barrels for 20 months.

No scores yet for this yet but the 2016 vintage in Napa Valley was absolutely extraordinary rating 98 points overall from the Wine Advocate. This Cabernet Sauvignon brims with ripe, concentrated aromas of black currant and blackberry with a roasted coffee and mocha background, underscored by threads of faint floral notes. This wine’s lush core of bright blackberry, cherry and red currant are complemented by expressive toasted notes on the mid-palate. The finish is full of lingering flavors of vanilla, caramel, toffee, tobacco and spice.
