2016 Judd's Hill Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1534214 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Violets and hints of tobacco with leafy cabernet nuances and a ripe dark-fruit edge. The palate has a suave array of blue fruit and some redder-berry notes. Very focused and fresh. This has terrific appeal. Inner quote mark (11/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot and 12% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it is scented of vague plums and cassis with notions of earth and tobacco. The palate is medium to full-bodied, plush, juicy and easy-breezy on the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

K&L Notes

Judd's Hill is like a winery from a whole different era. Like something before Napa became the star studded, cult Cab producing, Disneyland it often feels like today. The winery is family-owned and operated by two generations of the Finkelstein family. The estate is a compact 14 acres of hillside plantings on the eastern slopes of the valley just north of the city of Napa itself. The wines are made in a very traditional manner, without excessive ripeness, extract, or oak usage.

A fine deal in traditional Napa Cabernet. Judd's Hill is a small, family owned estate in the eastern hills of Napa Valley adjacent to Silverado Trail. The "down-valley" location of the estate lends a more restrained, old-school, feel to the wine due to the cooler climate of the site. The 2016 displays a complex mix of earthy red fruits, briary notes, cigar box, shaved cedar. The wine is medium-plus bodied, with nice varietal tannin and lovely fresh acidity. Perfect for Rack of Lamb. I love the more traditional feel to this wine, Bordeaux fans take note, this will work for you too. Thanks to a winery direct deal we can offer this boutique Cab for a price that becoming increasingly rare in quality Napa Cabernet and at a massive discount from it's typical retail price. Quantities are limited.
