Winery Notes
Winery Notes:
Wine Spectator - A powerful, concentrated style with a potent minty-oregano component, turning dry and chewy, with dried currant, sage and dried herb flavors. Very raw, with hard tannins.
 
Winery Notes
Winery Notes:
Robert Parker - From a vineyard on Pritchard Hill, this 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is packed and stacked with blueberry and blackberry fruit interwoven with graphite and earth characteristics. However, a wall of tannin in the finish raises some concerns about when it will hit its full stride. There is enough depth and concentration to support the wine’s structure, but this is a broodingly backward, forboding style of wine that requires 3-4 years of bottle age.

Winery Notes:
It was with mixed emotion that we received the news that our friends at Versant Vineyards sold their spectacular Pritchard Hill vineyard. Nestled in Napa Valley's eastern mountain range, their immediate neighbors include Colgin, Bryant Family, and David Arthur. You'd be excused if you never heard of them though, as most of the fruit each vintage was sold to Lewis Cellars for blending into their Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($120/bottle) and as a main component for their ultra-premium Cuvee 'L' ($200/bottle). But since 1999, Versant has been holding back some of their best grapes for bottling under their own label. Made by Robbie Meyer, formerly with Peter Michael and Lewis Cellars, this has been one of our favorite under-the-radar California Cabs. But due to the microscopic production, we've never had much to offer. And despite very little press on the wine, we always sell out quickly to its loyal followers. But the wine is no more… Tim Mondavi, who recently developed his own label, Continuum, started to acquire land on Pritchard Hill to give his new project a home. Needing an anchor vineyard of pedigree, he made Versant owner Richard Martin a deal he couldn't refuse. Continuum Cabernet, by the way, sells for $200/btl.
 

Additional Information

Sub-Region :
Napa Valley
America’s equivalent of Bordeaux, Napa Valley is the most famous winegrowing region in the United States. Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay reign supreme in Napa Valley, but many of varietals are also grown successfully. Wines made from Napa Valley grapes vary greatly depending on the specific AVA or sub region where they are grown. Mount Veeder, Howell Mountain, Stag’s Leap, Oakville and Rutherford are a few acclaimed sub regions with their own distinct climactic and soil conditions. It is also the home of California “cult wines” like Screaming Eagle, Harlan Estate and Grace Family Vineyard. View all our items from Napa Valley
Region :
California
Since the famous Judgement of Paris in 1976 California wines have unquestionably ranked among the best in the world. From the Anderson Valley in the North through Temecula Valley in the South, California vineyards grow dozens of wine grape varietals that produce wines of many different styles. The California wine industry has steadily gained ground since the 1960s (the industry took a major hit following Prohibition), but its roots date back over 200 years. Major grape varietals include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. View all our items from California
