Napa Cellars puts a modern spin on classic Napa wines, combining Napa’s legendary terroir with contemporary sensibilities to create delicious wines that possess all of the character you’ve come to expect from Napa, but with an attitude and price that we think you’ll find rather refreshing. Winemaker Joe Shirley and his team have the great fortune of being able to pick and choose the finest fruit from many of Napa’s renowned vineyards ensuring that every vintage represents the very best of Napa Cellars - and the Napa Valley.
The 2016 Napa Valley 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. Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 2% Malbec, 2% Syrah, and 1% Petit Verdot.
Cool and rather shy with minty freshness, this is an unusual Napa cabernet and the interplay of sour cherries and moderately crisp tannins on the palate makes it a rare, food-friendly wine for this category. Rating: 91 Points; James Suckling
Herbs and spices meld with a concentrated core of blackberry, black cherry and toasted oak in this Cabernet that’s blended with 10% Merlot and smaller amounts of Malbec, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Accents of clove, tobacco and dark chocolate round out the plush, creamy finish. Rating: 90 Points; Wine Enthusiast
