Winemaker's Notes

If Six Was Nine is World's End take on a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon varietal wine. However, as they come from Bordeaux they find it difficult to live with just one variety! So they blend in a little Merlot to help the middle palate and Cabernet Franc to provide just that extra bit of lift.

Critical Acclaim

"This interesting Cabernet was grown in various parts of the valley, but you can detect a cool-climate influence in the acidity and especially the tannins, which are firm. Yet the wine, which contains small amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, is remarkably ripe in blackberries, cherries and currants. Shows lots of elegance and complexity. Drink it over the next six years."
91 Points

"Bright ruby to the rim. Pure, reticent aromas of cassis, chocolate and crushed rock. Juicy, smooth and harmonious; not hugely complex but a very well-judged blend, with pliant black cherry, menthol and mineral flavors and a graceful, long finish featuring sweet, firm tannins. I'd give this a few years in the cellar.
Rating: 91(+?)"

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,...
