2018 Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: Fifth-generation winemaker Joseph Wagner started with a simple philosophy — combine the very best grapes from across the valley into one amazingly balanced style to weave a tapestry of Napa Valley wine.
For the Quilt Napa Valley, we focused on vineyards with well-draining, low-nutritive soils that stress the vines. The result of these soils is a grape crop with extraordinary concentration of flavor, color and texture. While the majority of the fruit comes from the floor of the Napa Valley to achieve the richness and elegance desired, we also relied on some grapes grown in the well-drained gravelly soils of the side slopes along with high elevation in the mountainous areas for a blend with more structure and complexity than we could have achieved had we used fruit grown solely in a single region. Napa Valley AVAs: Oakville, St. Helena, Atlas Peak, Coombsville, Oak Knoll, Calistoga, and Howell Mountain.
COLOR: Crimson red with scarlet highlights. AROMAS: Enticing aromas of Bing cherry, dark chocolate, lightly toasted oak with a hint of blackberry jam and vanilla.
PALATE: Striking flavors of ripe raspberry, blackberry, cocoa, and hints of vanilla linger harmoniously. Full yet elegant on the palate,with vibrant fruit and very approachable tannins. This wine has a long and velvety finish.
Filet Mignon with balsamic reduction, pan-roasted lamb chops with cabernet sauce, sauteed broccolini with garlic, rosemary scalloped potatoes, or a hearty charcuterie platter
James Suckling - "Blackcurrant, blackberry-leaf, orange-zest and milk-chocolate aromas. More citrus zest and fresh herbs on the palate. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine tannins and lots of fresh berry character. Drink or hold. Screw cap."
