Introduction: The 2019 Kukeri Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from some of the best Cabernet growing regions in Napa Valley, including the Truchard vineyard, located in Los Carneros and another small family vineyard situated within 1500 feet elevation on the eastern slope of Atlas Peak. A touch of Malbec, and Petite Verdot balance the rich dark fruit and massive tannins of our 2019 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, adding a vibrancy to its lush mouthfeel and lingering dry finish and balanced acidity.

Winemaking: The grapes were handpicked at the end of October, de-stemmed and crushed into small fermentation bins and allowed to cold soak for 3 days to help stabilize the color and enhance flavor. It was fermented for 16 days and punched down 3 times a day, with an additional 4 days extended maceration to increase extraction of color and phenolic compounds. The wine is then gently pressed and aged on fine lees for 30 months in mixture of 80% French and 20% American oak barrels with 40% new French oak to preserve the delicate notes and mouthfeel.

Tasting Notes: Intense and wild the 2019 Kukeri Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, exhibiting aromas of dark fruits, black tea, tobacco, and green olives, accented with earthy spice notes. A hint of mountain forest, light cedar oak and dusty baking cocoa combine these aromatics to create this juicy and chewy, full-bodied Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with refreshing acidity and long legs, which makes a perfect accompaniment to any grilled meat dishes.

Enjoy with Family and Friends!
