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.

This makes all three new releases the most exciting to date, especially the White. The Fingers Crossed Chardonnay comes from Block-W which was planted in 1973, making it the vineyard’s oldest. It was these very same vines that went into the legendary Sine Qua Non Pearl Clutcher 2012! Nik also uses fruit from one of California’s other great terroirs, the Sandford & Benedict Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills, for all three cuvées.   Presented as 3 bottles of each wine in a stunning wooden box, the Fingers Crossed ‘Unanswered Prayers’ Red Assortment Case 2021 is a cellar essential and as collectible as it gets.

2019 Dalla Valle, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 1x75cl

JD97JS98RP98+VM97WI98
Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc Vintage production: c.1,000 cases Eastern Oakville is one of Napa Valley's most star-studded neighbourhoods. Overlooking them all from the highest... point s one of the Estates that elevated Napa to the top of the global scene in the 1990s, Dalla Valle Vineyards. The Cabernet Sauvignon is the wine that it all began with back in 1986, when founders Gustav and Naoko Dalla Valle introduced their hillside Estate Vineyard to the world with this debut vintage. It's the small addition of Cabernet Franc - which thrives in the iron rich volcanic soils, that sets this wine apart. While the 2018 vintage may have been a tough act to follow, the 2019s standout as another classic, idyllic Napa Valley vintage to remember. A milestone was reached at Dalla Valle in 2019 as they embraced the world of Biodynamic farming. Their deep love and connection to this land inspired them to begin this journey, and they have not looked back since. The elements of energy and vibrancy show in the 2019 vintage. A cool winter and mild rainy spring replenished the vines and provided them with the energy to sustain the heat of summer and perfectly ripen in the autumn.

2021 Realm Cellars, Farella Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 6x75cl

JS98VM98WI97+
Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot Vintage production: 500 cases Farella Vineyard is Realm’s Estate vineyard in the Coombsville AVA. A fantastically complex site in the foothills of the Vaca... Mountain range, the vineyard lies in one of the cooler regions of the Napa Valley. The site features layers of volcanic tufa, red decomposed rock and ashy deposits from ancient landslides, vast geologic episodes that literally turned this vineyard on its head. The 25 acres of vines are divided into numerous blocks with elevations ranging between 300 and 500 feet. Varying slopes create distinct microclimates and soil compositions, and the vineyard’s diversity is suitable for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc. Realm has produced a Single Vineyard Cabernet from Farella since 2003. In 2018, they partnered with the Farella family on a plan to become long-term stewards of the estate. The core of Realm’s Farella Cabernet comes from a high point in the vineyard, a block referred to as “rockpile” because of the preponderance of stone and gravel in the soil. This block is bathed in afternoon sunlight during the growing season and the wine - concentrated and beautifully-structured - consistently shows a mix of red and black fruits with spice and mineral overtones. Farella has been historically 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, comprising Clones 4 and 8, but they began working with Merlot in the 2019 vintage. The 2021 Farella Vineyard introduces a new artwork on the label by Ethiopian-born artist Wosene Worke Kosrof. He uses contorted symbols of his native Amharic language to represent dance and movement in this artwork Heart of Dance. The label is a tribute to Frank Farella, a lover of music, dance and language, who founded Farella Vineyard in the mid-1970s.

2019 Ad Vivum, Sleeping Lady Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Yountville 3x75cl

WI98
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 350 cases When a winemaker who played one of the most pivotal roles in raising Napa Valley to World Class status hand picks a single-vineyard for... his own project, you know it's going to be something truly special. As the Founding Winemaker at Dominus Estate (1984 to 1996), Chris Phelps is that person, and the wine in question is his Ad Vivum Cabernet Sauvignon. Chris completed his BS in Enology at the legendary U.C. David in 1981, and immediately headed west to study Viticulture at the University of Bordeaux. After graduating in 1982, he was singled-out by Christian Moueix and enologist Jean-Claude Berrouet, for extensive training at Château Pétrus in Pomerol. Such was his unbelievable talent, Moueix appointed him as Founding Winemaker for his new winery in Napa, Dominus Estate. Over 12 years, Chris produced some historic wines, including the revered Dominus 1990, 1991 (his personal favourite), and 1994 vintages. In 1996 he moved to Caymus Vineyard as winemaker before starting in own consulting business in 2003. June 2007 was the watershed moment when he started his own winery Ad Vivum. Having started working in 2005 with fruit from the cooler-climate Sleeping Lady Vineyard on an experimental basis, Chris was convinced this young site could produce world class wines, and knew this was the future site for Ad Vivum. Since the first vintage, all of Chris's fruit has come from two upper blocks that he feels are the best sites in the vineyard. The resulting Cabernet captures the classic richness and depth of Napa Cabernet while harnessing the cooling influence of the nearby San Pablo Bay to bring energy and refinement.

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot Vintage production: 625 cases Blankiet Estate is nestled above Yountville on the western foothills of the Mayacamas... Mountains. ?The Paradise Hills Vineyard is carved on steep hillsides just above the famed Dominus Estate Napanook parcel that was originally planted in 1838 by Yountville’s founder, George C. Yount. With an ideal eastern exposure, the land is bathed with morning sun and benefits from natural shade in the hot afternoons, and cool breezes from the San Pablo Bay flow constantly across the land. It's located on three volcanic knolls where soil profiles vary from deeply fractured rocks and volcanic ash, to thick clay deposits, meaning each parcel is distinguished by a unique subsoil and microclimate. At just 6.5 hectares in size it's a remarkably small site, yet the incredible complexity of the terroir allows for three distinct wines, each of a singular style. This is an Estate at the top of its game. Combined with the very talented winemaker Graeme MacDonald and owner Claude Blankiet's attention to detail, is truly worthy of an exploration.

JD96-98
Blend: 33% Petite Sirah, 33% Syrah, 17% Graciano, 13% Touriga Nacional, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 610 cases A brand-new cuvée, we tasted the Somnus 2019 from barrel in 2022 (it was... simply label ‘XC’ for extended cellared), and even at that relatively early stage it was a mind-blowing experience. Our notes read: “Off the charts – this will be incredible!”, which almost feels like an understatement now. Named after the Greek God of Sleep, Somnus slumbered for an almost unheard of 44 months in barrel to tame the insane level of power and intensity, and Justin’s judgement was impeccable as it came together beautifully in time for bottling. For Saxum fans, this is as thrilling as it gets! NOTES FROM WINEMAKER JUSTIN SMITH: “I finally get to introduce you to this new cuvée, Somnus, named after the Roman god of sleep, because this wine gets to sleep an extra year in barrel! 44 months it’s been slumbering away. Back in 2019 we had a couple of amazing lots in our cellar that were so unique, and so incredible, I really wanted to showcase them. The problem was they were also extremely structured. The original plan was to give them the 33 month elevage like Bone Rock and Rocket block, but when it came time to bottle it last year it was still too beastly. Think velvet glove in a iron gauntlet. We tucked it back in and let it sleep another whole year, and when it woke up this time, it blew us all away. It is something unique for sure. Still a beast, but something very special. Something that I believe could only happen here on the Central Coast. It is another wine in this line up that has to be tasted to be believed, but understand, it’s not for the faint of heart. It is Paso.”
