Napa Cab - Splurge Set
Keever Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014 - $135
Estate Cabernet from hillside vineyards in Yountville, west side. Celia Welch, rock star winemaker (Scarecrow, Corra, Barbour, more). 2 years in 75% new French oak. Rich and supple, this is a great example of what the 2014 vintage does best. Ripe red and black berries, black plums, pipe tobacco, mocha and a whiff of mint on the long, decadent finish. Enough structure to cellar for 10 years or more, smooth enough to drink now.
The Grade Winfield Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Calistoga 2014 - $100
“Winfield Vineyard” is just north of Calistoga at Old Toll Road and Highway 29, base of Mt Saint Helena. This Cab goes KER-POW in the mouth with richness of berry fruits, sweet oak, spice and glycerine. Get mulberries, 12 year aged Bourbon, cinnamon, allspice. Party in the mouth. 375 cases made.
