Winemaker Notes

This wine hums with bittersweet cocoa, rich dark chocolate and chocolate-covered blueberries. Deep, ripened black fruits, brambly blackberries, cherry almond and crème de cassis fold together to complete the nose. Subdued, but present tobacco-box spice and sweet oak coats the whole mouth, while polished tannins form the even, consistent finish that makes this one of our most concentrated Wurtele Cabernet Sauvignons to date. Estimated maturity: 2016-2021.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Stunning, dramatic, but nowhere near ready to drink. Dry and complex in mountain tannins, the wine displays massively deep flavors of blackberries and cassis, and the new oak is substantial and sweet. Try holding until after 2010, and should develop for an additional six years.

Terra Valentine, Napa Valley, California
2006 Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Terra Valentine takes winemaking to a new level - about 2,100 feet above the Napa Valley. It is a winery that brings together a state-of-the-art fermentation system with the uncovered beauty of an artisan-constructed building - a colorful and well-hidden treasure of Spring Mountain history.

Terra Valentine sources from Spring Mountain whose varied terrain shines through in the robust yet balanced style of the wines–exhibiting the true essence of the Spring Mountain District. While mountain viticulture presents its challenges, for Terra Valentine, it comes down to hand-tending the vines to get the most out of the diverse soil types and ripening patterns that the mountain bears. The reward–wines ripe with intense flavor and color.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
