The Pleinair is a blend of two Cabernets from two famous parts of Napa, Knights Valley & St Helena mountain. It reveals its beautiful structure and silky texture while keeping all the characteristics of the terroir.
In the glass the wine has a smooth dark berry color. The nose shows notes of deep red fruits, espresso, white pepper, wet tobacco leaves and red cherries.
On the palate the tannins are smooth like velvet and develop into a classy and refined Cabernet.
Another must try!!! Don’t miss it, ORDER NOW!
Wine Advocate, Robert Parker Notes, 91Pts:
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Pleinair spent 18 months in 58% new French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. This elegant, stylish Cabernet Sauvignon, created from four different sources in Napa, exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as textured, blueberry, red and blackcurrant fruit, cedarwood and background toast, and a medium to full-bodied, plush style. There are 1,100 cases of this beauty that sells at a realistic price. Drink it over the next decade or more. (Oct 2014)”
"Beautiful red fruit layers of strawberry jam, raspberry and cherry with nuances of white pepper, tobacco leave and licorice. Velvety mouth feel with a tannin filled, fruit concentrated, long finish. Nice and balanced with natural acidity that promises many years to enjoy. Barrel aged 19 months in French oak (55% new). 1,100 cases produced. Alcohol 14.5%.”
