2019 Dalla Valle, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 1x75cl

JS98RP98+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 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.

2021 Bevan Cellars, EE Red Wine, Napa Valley 6x75cl

JD99WI98
Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc Vintage production: 600 cases the prospect of combining the best aspects of the Sugarloaf Mountain and Tench Vineyards is truly mouth-watering, and... Russell couldn't resist blending Cabernet Sauvignon from Tench with Cabernet Franc from Sugarloaf in the 'new' EE Red Wine 2021. EE had long been a Tench-designate, but the stunning quality of fruit in the 2021 vintage demanded these two sites finally came together - and what a wine it is! Refined and complex on the nose, there layers of dark fruit, sweet paprika, graphite and bags of minerality. The palate is rich and plush with velvety tannins, an delicious ferrous note, loads of depth, and carried brilliantly by an overall sense of purity and energy. 99pts from Jeb Dunnuck, it's "A gorgeous wine."

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc Vintage production: 550 cases DVO Napa Valley, the joint-venture between Dalla Valle Vineyards and Ornellaia, has firmly established its ‘Cult’... status among the world’s collectors, and has quickly taken its position on the most exclusive restaurant wine lists.

Their shared passion and skill are on display in full glory with DVO, and they went to extraordinary lengths to pick three first-class vineyards in the Oakville, Coombsville and Mount Veeder AVAs. Each brings a distinctive character to the Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend, and stylistically it is unlike anything else we’ve tasted from Napa. As Perrotti-Brown says: “Draped in flamboyant drama, this is a very different, very exciting new face of Napa Valley!”
