Kuleto Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
The 2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon exudes a combination of tar, red and black fruits, and sweet high-toned herbs in the nose. The oak treatment supports but doesn’t overwhelm the flavors and provides a nice lengthy backbone through the wine. It has a juiciness that is consistent with the fruit flavors and tremendous focus. This is a wine to enjoy over many years to come.
Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 6% Cabernet Franc
Located on the eastern edge of the Napa Valley in the hills above Lake Hennessey and the town of Rutherford, this extraordinary mountaintop estate features 82 individual vineyard blocks, three distinctive soil types, and a range of elevations and exposures. From this rich and diverse palette of fruit, Kuleto Estate produces a small portfolio of exceptional estate grown wines.
Kuleto Estate wines are 100% estate-grown, produced and bottled. With 82.9 acres of vines planted between 800 and 1,450 feet, each of the 100+ micro-blocks must receive individualized treatment to maximize their potential. Winemaker Giovanni Verdejo has been working at Kuleto since 2002 and has mastered the art of cultivating the unique personalities of each block into some of the finest mountain estate wines in the Napa Valley.
