Winemaker Notes

The higher elevation, excellent drainage, and slightly cooler temperatures imbue the fruit with distinctly mountain characteristics. A concentrated blueberry fruit, heightened by herbaceous elements unique to the property exude from the glass. Blue fruit, minerality and tobacco are the dominant features on the palate. The mountain fruit provides a more powerful, gritty style of tannin, giving this wine the structure it needs to stand the test of time.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Janzen Cabernet Sauvignon Cloudy’s Vineyard hails from the Dutch Henry Canyon between the Switchback and Hourglass vineyards, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and a more backward mountain style with noticeable tannin and structure. With a dense purple color and plenty of blueberry, black raspberry, violets and oak spice, it is powerful, full-bodied and moderately tannic. Forget this for 4-5 years and drink it over the following three decades.
Rating: 94+

Wine Enthusiast
From the producer's estate vineyard on the Vaca Mountain range, this wine offers soft, generous tannin around a juicy core of cassis, dried currant, leather and cigar. Full bodied and robustly crafted, it benefits from a balance of bright acidity. It will be enjoyed further with age; drink now through 2023. Cellar Selection
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Pleasantly oaky and cedary, with nutmeg and hazelnut accents to the licorice and blackberry flavors, turning to mocha, espresso, dried herb and underbrush details. Finishes with a potent aftertaste. Drink now through 2028. 197 cases made

For 25 years and longer, I've had a wine glass molded to my right hand. Today, my head has a permanent tilt from holding my very prominent nose over the alluring aromas and beckoning colors of many of the world's great wines. If I haven't tried every one, I've certainly made it a passion to attempt to taste of them all. Over this third of a lifetime, I've come to know and respect many great wine makers around our little world, and now clearly understand the relationship between an individual's character and his wine. You've read or heard about many of these people - men and women who are born to search for perfection, who scowl at the notion of compromise. These same people channel their character into their wine - their individuality, their uniqueness, their propensity to create rather than to plagiarize. Eminent character seems kindred to noteworthy wines...

Being so motivated, I longed to create a distinctive, noble wine. In the California tradition of working with the new to improve the traditional, I looked to achieve a way of broadening the distinctly majestic flavors and aromas of the king of Napa Valley's varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the years I've had the opportunity to experiment with various lots of Cabernet, and I eventually settled on the hillside fruit from Ahollinger vineyards in the Mount Veeder area. This vineyard produces a bold and expressive, yet elegant wine. In 1992, we discovered the Sangiovese fruit of Cal Showket in the Oakville appellation, and were literally overwhelmed by the intensity of what resulted in our first crush in 1993. To embellish the color and acid levels of the Sangiovese, we crushed and macerated this fruit with one and a half tons of the best Petite Syrah fruit I had ever sampled.

As time aged each of these wines, and molded their individual character, I was able to determine a blend that married the elegant, yet rich and softly oaked Cabernet with the Sangiovese's long and linear tannins, at the same time elevating the cherry, berry Sangiovese fruit to a pronounced level. The resulting wine showed that a whole could be greater than it's individual parts. And so...'Bacio Divino', a divine kiss, was born.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
