Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The dark label of the Black Aces bottle represents the strength, determination, and perseverance of the Black Aces who silently support each NHL team, always ready to jump in at a moment’s notice for the team’s greater good.
This wine behind the label is a blend world-class Cabernet Sauvignon from the Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard in eastern Rutherford, and Renteria Vineyard in northern Oakville. They all come together in synergy, effortlessly blending the expected with the unexpected, to produce a beautifully balanced wine.
Winemaker Keith Emerson:
“Cassis, violets, black currant and graphite enters fresh and lively with amazing energy and plushness. Some blue fruits as well on the mid-palate, firm and structured tannins expressing a true mountain profile petrichor, coffee grounds, cocoa powder with excellent richness and concentration.”
Four Corners Wine:
“Talk about putting a smile on your face! The fruit-driven aromatics of the delicious Cab are so vibrant with a lovely ‘briary’ frame and really slatey minerality, wrapped up with crisp savoury notes. The palate is so fresh, vibrant, and intense, amazing in its immediacy. The core is fleshy, juicy, with a great fruit profile and real clarity. Expressive and impressively structured, this is a great flagbearer for the new breed of exciting and modern Napa Cabs. Pull a cork anytime over the coming 15+ years.” (Sep. 2023)
