Winemaker's Notes

Vinified entirely from estate-grown grapes, including a small complement of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, Salvestrin 1999 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a beautiful dark red-scarlet color. Its inviting, complex aromas feature ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit, cinnamon and nutmeg spice, and a toasty tone from extended barrel aging. The wine has a full, smooth texture and rich blackberry and bing cherry flavors balanced by soft tannins and crisp acidity. Delicious now, it will gain further complexity with additional bottle aging.

Composition: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Merlot 2% Cabernet Franc
