Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Muscular in youth, this Cabernet demands at least a decade in bottle age for its generous nature to present itself. Dark chocolate, mocha and berry jam aromas remain tightly wrapped around the jammy berry, cola and spicy anise flavors found in the palate. The entry is ripe and juicy, but the chalky tannins hang on firmly at the end. Oak toast is layered successfully with vanilla, root beer and caramel highlights throughout this sophisticated wine.

The 2006 vintage of the Yountville Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is dedicated to the 2008 Markham "Mark of Distinction" grant recipient for their passion and commitment to feeding the hungry and helping to leadthe Table to Table food rescue program in Northeast New Jersey. Table to Table delivers perishable foods left over at grocery stores and retailers to the hungry for immediate consumption. Chuck Russo, dedicated Board member, used the funding to fuel the refrigerated trucks that distribute food that would otherwise be wasted. Markham helped the organization reach its goal of delivering over six million meals at less than eight cents each.

Critical Acclaim

"Tastes and feels like all the parts are very good. The tannins are polished, the fruit is ripe and complex, the oak is elaborate, and there’s a nice bite of acidity in the background. The blackberry, black currant, carob and cedar flavors are enticing and dry. But this wine is too young. It has a youthful rudeness that demands 5–7 years in the cellar. The score reflects potential."

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,...
