Winemaker's Notes

Newton Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented with wild yeast, native to Newton's Spring Mountain estate, and is bottled unfiltered to preserve the natural fruit essence and to foster the wine's unique aroma and flavor. This exceptional dedication to nurturing the richness that nature provides allows Newton Vineyard to produce wines of brilliance and purity.

This rich deeply, colored wine opens with savory aromas reminiscent of the forest floor leaving impressions of juniper, sage and clove leading into luscious dark fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry. Layers of sweet vanilla, anise, tobacco and hints of lavender also persist on the palate. The well-developed tannins and bright acidity suggest that this wine, while excellent young, will surely reward careful cellaring.

This food-friendly wine will be a great companion to a range of wild games dishes and grilled meats. A beef tenderloin with winter vegetables would also be a superb match.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep, intense inky-black hue with red notes at the rim. Pretty bouquet of sweet cherry, brown sugar and light plum scents. Slightly gritty tannins on entry with black oak, rich black cherry and exceptional integration of acids and cedar-tinged tannins. Tart and tangy with spicy oak, semi-sweet chocolate and forest floor accents on a lingering finish."

"Even longer-lived than the Merlot, are the 4,000 or so cases of 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Unfiltered. What people don’t realize is that proprietress Su Hua Newton completely declassified the 2003 and 2004 vintages, as she just wasn’t happy with them. This is her first vintage since 2002. The wine is deep ruby/purple in color and exhibits notes of underbrush, black truffle, creme de cassis, incense, and a hint of earth. It is full-bodied, powerful, but at the same time elegant, pure, and moderately tannic. This wine needs another 2-4 years of bottle age, and should age nicely for 20-25 years."

The Estate was planted to Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Merlot thrives in a land which is rocky mixed with clay beneath the surface, while Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot like an impoverished soil, and Cabernet Sauvignon is...

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
