2010 Shelter, Robert Foley, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Back by popular demand! These are still outstanding value, order now!

Our Impressions:
Shelter Wine Company is the brainchild of David Stevens and a New York City wine broker. They have a distinctive label, designed to be read by diners in restaurants as waiters pour for them. We’ve featured their wines before, including the 2006 “Butcher” and this elegant pair of Cabs, which are soon returning to the Duke!

Made by winemaker Robert Foley, we praised the 2010 Shelter Cabernet for its expressive nose of red berries, crème de cassis and vanilla. Its dark ruby color also won our admiration. On the palate the flavors followed the nose, with dark red fruit augmented with well-integrated tannins. On the mid-palate we also detected spice box and cedar notes, with a lingering, harmonious finish.

The 27/29 was co-fermented from two vineyards in the Howell Mountain sub-appellation of the Napa Valley (thus its name), one on a mountain and the other on the valley floor. The distinctive terroir of these locations gives the wine a very unique character. The wine shares a dark, almost inky color with its partner. On the palate dark fruit and berry flavors are complemented with wood and earth notes.

To cut to the point: These are fantastic wines from a renowned winemaker for a ridiculously low price. Get them before they’re gone!

Winery Notes:
"For 6 years David [Stevens] enjoyed tasting, buying, recommending and then selling his personal favorites [wines]. During the course of this, he also established many strong relationships with area vintners. He has taken a number of Independent wine courses and programs, and continues to further his palate with International wine exposure. As we have seen time and time again, regardless of your background, when the wine industry gets in your blood it becomes a lifelong passion. David ran one of the finer wine shops in the valley for a number of years and it’s almost a logical progression that he also became a vintner. A 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon was their first commercial vintage. Today all of Shelter’s wines are sourced from high-end Napa area vineyards. David has many contacts within the area wine industry and is sometimes approached by vintner’s who want to sell their “juice”. As a result, the wine has already been hand crafted by area vintners by the time Shelter does their final blending – the locations and vineyards are secret which helps add to the mystique of their wines! This “juice” is not just second label stuff – several wineries have very strict protocols about how much wine they produce, or find themselves not wanting to take on the additional workload that extra production brings, and this is where Shelter comes in. Let their wine speak for itself, Shelter will not bottle anything that they feel is not up to their exacting standards.
