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.

2019 Heimark Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 3x75cl

VM97
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 563 cases From the multi-awarding winning winemaker, to an iconic vineyard manager behind some of the most famous names in Napa, and a terroir... cherished for over 25 years by some of the Valley's legendary Estates, there is so much to get excited about in the Heimark 2019. The team at Heimark is something of a dream line-up. Françoise Pechson was crowned Winemaker of The Year 2019 by The San Francisco Chronicle, and again as Antonio Galloni's Winemaker of The Year 2021. Her CV includes working with Jean Delmas at Château Haut Brion, and 20 years as winemaker for the legendary Araujo Estate. In addition to her primary position at Heimark, Françoise is also the winemaker for Vine Hill Ranch (VHR) and Accendo Cellars. It's little wonder Galloni called her "One of the most influential and highly respected winemakers in Napa Valley." Then there's the vineyard itself, described by legendary winemaker Phlippe Melka as "The Pauillac of Napa Valley." It was planted in 1997 by Harlan Estate's own Mary Hall Mayer, and is managed by Michael Wolf - the man behind Scarecrow, To Kalon, and VHR. It has been a prized source of fruit for some of Napa's most iconic wines since 1997, leading up to the Heimark Family releasing their own label in 2016. Many of the great Araujo Estate Cabs were composed primarily of Heimark fruit, as has the multiple 100-point Lail Vineyards' J.Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon (made by Melka) since 2008. Arkenstone Estate also produce a remarkable single-vineyard Cabernet from this awesome site. A critically acclaimed winemaker; the dream vineyard team; a site revered by Napa's top Estates; critical acclaim... This Cabernet Sauvignon commands a place in every cellar and collection.

2021 Realm Cellars, Moonracer Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 6x75cl

JS97VM97
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 830 cases Realm's Moonracer Estate sits on Wappo Hill near the town of Yountville. At 170 metres above sea level, it's the highest elevation point... on the valley floor. Wappo Hill was named after the Native American tribe that was prevalent in the area long before California was a state. The Wappos believed in Animism, a spiritual idea that all the elements of the natural environment have a soul. The Moonracer name and label are an oblique reference to the earliest inhabitants of the place Realm now calls home. The Cabernet Sauvignon-based Moonracer is composed of the finest lots from the Estate vineyard. Winemaker Benoit Touquette has much to choose from, as the site, with its multiple blocks, elevations, facings and diverse soils, has character in spades. Moonracer bears the unmistakable mark of this stimulating vineyard as well as the Stags Leap District. The wine is strong and powerful yet elegant, with refined tannins and plenty of depth. It beautifully combines characteristics typical of northern and southern Napa Valley. For the label, Barcelona-based artist Sergio Albiac inserts data taken from weather stations at the Moonracer vineyard, including temperature, wind, and solar radiation, into an algorithm that produces abstract images based on the data. Each vintage of Moonracer is represented by data from that particular year, and each label is unique.

2021 Dragonette, Rita’s Crown Vineyard Chardonnay, Sta. Rita Hills 1x75cl

JD95VM97
Blend: 100% Chardonnay Vintage Production: 330 cases One of the producers at the forefront of Sta. Rita's Hills' success is Dragonette Cellars. Winemaker Brandon Sparks-Gills, and brothers Steve and... John Dragonette, select the region's elite vineyards to make Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of utter refinement and distinction. Rita’s Crown vineyard is located at one of the highest points in the Sta. Rita Hills, adjacent to such famous sites as Mt Carmel and Sea Smoke. The soils are a mix of sandy and clay loams with a good amount of diatomaceous earth. Dragonette's Chardonnay comes from two parcels: block 16, (clone 76) lies at 800-950 feet on a steep, west-southwest facing hillside above the monastery, and block 12 (clone 95), a steep south facing hillside just below and to the west. These higher elevation blocks are exposed to fog and clouds most mornings and high winds most afternoons, cooling the vineyard. The climate and the low vigour soils produce a small canopy, small yields and a long, slow growing season. The wines here typically show beautiful, ripe tropical fruit flavours, balanced by remarkable acidity and strong notes of chalky minerals.

2018 Realm Cellars, Farella Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 1x75cl

JD97JS98RP97VM97
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: n/a 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.
