2021 Seven Apart, Expedition Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 1x75cl

WI98+
Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot Vintage production: 1,500 cases There is no doubt at all: Seven Apart is a name that will soon be spoken of alongside the Napa's... Elite wineries. The Expedition Cabernet Sauvignon is based around a core of fruit from the Estate's Base Camp Vineyard, sprinkled with hand-picked barrels from Estate's Stags Ridge Vineyard. The resulting wine in 2021 is a gorgeous expression that, for us, shows a new side to Napa that we can't wait to bring to the UK's most discerning cellars. Stags Ridge Vineyard sits above the fog line at an elevation of 450 metres on Atlas Peak's rocky, red volcanic soils. The small berries on these 25 year old vines produce wines rich in colour, tannin, and concentration. Base Camp Vineyard, planted between 1994 and 1998, surrounds the winery at the base of Atlas Peak in Soda Canyon, nestled alongside the famous Silverado Trail. The soils here consists of sand, clay, and gravel, giving the wines a rich structure and opulence. Such great fruit demands a great winemaker, and that person is Morgan Maureze. Having spend his formative years working at Dominus Estate, where his father was appointed general manager in 1985, Morgan graduated from UC Davis and the University of Bordeaux. He spent time working at Châteaux Haut-Brion and Petrus, before completing his Thesis at Domaine de la Romanée-Conti! He was inexorably drawn back to California, where he was hand-picked by legendary winemaker Andy Erickson, becoming his right-hand man at Estates including Screaming Eagle and Dalla Valle Vineyards. Andy was Seven Apart's inaugural winemaker in 2018, before championing Morgan as his successor in 2023 - most importantly, they had already worked together on the 2021s, so Morgan was the perfect choice.

2018 Bevan Cellars, Ontogeny Red Wine, Napa Valley 1x75cl

JD99
Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec Vintage production: n/a The key to this magical and dynamic blend is the vineyard sources: in addition to Sugarloaf Mountain,...

Russell makes his selection in the cellar, picking single-vineyard barrels that are crying out to be blended together for an earlier drinking, hedonistic, and utterly delicious wine. The Ontogeny is a true cellar-barrel selection, and is always the last of the cuvées to be blended making each new release highly-anticipated!

Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 375 cases From the eastern hillside of Oakville, the Fait-Main Tierra Roja Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 represents the reawakening of a... legendary Napa site, with owner Linda Neal giving Benoit exclusive access to this epic terroir. Look above and you’ll see Dalla Valle Vineyards; look down and there’s BOND St. Eden; crane your neck tot eh south, and Screaming Eagle and Tench Vineyard sit side-by-side. It’s Napa’s very own ‘Route des Grands Crus’. This is a stonkingly good wine and we expect high scores when the critics get their hands on a bottle, you’ll be getting this before them! Four Corners Wine: “This is a classical Cabernet from the very first aromatics, dripping with regal stature and poise. The notes of warm red earth could come from no other piece of Napa land, framed with wet clay, a bright floral lift, and a core of charcoal and pencil shavings, all wrapped within a broad spread of delicious fruit. The depth is astounding on the nose, as it is on the palate. At this early stage there's an almost primal feel to the incredible 'volcanic' tannins, as it builds to a stacked mid-palate and fantastic finish. Layers of dark chocolate and preserved black fruit only hint at the complexity of the wine. Given a few years to settle down in the cellar, this is destined for greatness and explores the nuances of hillside and Valley floor in riveting fashion. What a debut for Fait-Main!” (Sep. 2023)

2021 Carter, Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon The O.G., Oakville 6x75cl

JD99WI99
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: n/a With low yields and intense concentration, 2021 turns out to be very good year for the ‘O.G.’ block of Beckstoffer To Kalon. This is a... dense and ethereal Napa Cabernet Sauvignon revealing gorgeous notes of black and blue berry, complex floral and earth undertones matched with an inky deep purple color. Sweet firm tannins integrate with a plush, persistent and prodigious palate that has both weight and richness. As with prior tannic vintages of this wine, the structure and power of the clone 337 from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard lends itself well to an extended decant or several years of bottle age to really spread its wings. This wine should hit its prime in 5 to 10 years and continue to age and become more complex for decades.

2020 Saxum, Paderewski Vineyard, Paso Robles 1x75cl

VM93
Blend: 48% Syrah, 21% Mataro, 18% Zinfandel, 7% Graciano, 6% Tempranillo Vintage Production: 655 cases Travel just west of Paso Robles, and you will find Paderewski Vineyard: 95 acres of undulating,... steep, limestone rich hillsides within 570 rural, spring-fed acres. In the early 1900’s, this vineyard was cherished and farmed by world-renowned pianist, Polish diplomat, and vintner, Ignacy Jan Paderewski. Fast forward a century and in 2004, Bill and Liz Armstrong (Epoch Estate) became the stewards of this amazing piece of property. They tasked Saxum's own Justin Smith with the mission to bring this historic vineyard back to life. Home to intense earth that bears little resemblance to typical California soils, this vineyard is filled with lean, rocky, and calcareous soil profiles. After carefully pairing the hillsides with their respective wine grape variety, the vineyard is planted with Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Petite Sirah, Tempranillo, Zinfandel, Grenache Blanc, and Picpoul Blanc. These vines are mostly grafted onto Phylloxera resistant Native American rootstock with the exception of a few blocks of Syrah and Grenache vines planted on their own rootstock. Creating a patchwork of vines, the vineyard’s clone selections were carefully chosen to create the perfect match between soil and vine. In addition, the vineyard blocks were meticulously laid out based on their unique exposures, soil attributes, and mesoclimates. Today, you are able to taste the synergy created by the methodical planting decisions made in 2004, as each block is happily producing fruit specific to their exact location.
