2021 Fait-Main 'Teeter-Totter' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Teeter Totter is a creamy, juicy and 100% drool-worthy wine. Red fruit and bright blueberry notes at first glance that evolve into darker tones of spices, chocolate, and black fruit. The palate is as soft as velvet and as refreshing as it gets – the perfect red for right this second. Each year Benoit’s blend varies in his "effort to capture all the incredible diversity that Napa Valley has to offer with different varietals, terroir, elevation, and exposure.” The fruit, however, is always sourced from multiple premium vineyards that Benoit works with regularly in Calistoga, Rutherford, Yountville, and Saint Helena when crafting his Cabernet knockouts for Jack Quinn, Realm, Kata and Fait-Main. This year’s blend comprises 85% Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford, 5% Charbono, 5% Petite Sirah, and 5% Zinfandel, all from Calistoga. Once again, a brilliant and cohesive equation in the bottle! The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon jumps out of the glass with notes of cassis, berries, floral tones, and a serious dash of spice. Ripe, polished tannins offer a rich and full-bodied palate experience, while the fresh acidity sustains fantastic length on the finish. It is the GO-TO glass of beautifully juicy, chewy, structured RED.
