2010 The Grade "Winfield Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Savignon (Previously $80)

SKU #1160501 Wine & Spirits

 A simple, lush Cabernet, this wine’s resinous tannins have a ghosting of green, hinting at redwood fronds and camphor. The finish is dry and warm, needing braised meats to extend the fruit flavors.  (12/2013)

K&L Notes

The Grade Cellars is a family-owned estate in the Calistoga district of Napa Valley. From their estate Winfield Vineyard, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in 30% new French oak for 20 months before bottling. From Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown: "The 2010 vintage was long & cool, a stark contrast to the ones preceding it. Fortunately, the Winfield Vineyard is situated in a warm, exposed pocket of Calistoga that captures afternoon sun and warmth well. The 2010 The Grade Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect example of everything the vintage was and had to offer. The traditional hallmarks of dark fruit and fine tannin are present, mixed with remarkable concentration and density. Tightly packed, there is plenty of stuffing to justify a long nap in your cellar, so patience, or a very generous decant if drinking in the near term, will be justly rewarded."
