Winemaker Notes

Near ideal growing conditions in 2012 yielded a classic example of Salvestrin Estate Cabernet. The wine is deeply colored with a black center and garnet edges. Lower your nose to the glass and you'll find a heavy perfume of lavender, camphor, and black cherry. Its multi-dimensional palate is rich and pure, with a fresh acidity. Flavors of chocolate and blackberry are carried through the lengthy finish. This is a wine that is drinking well now but will improve with ten plus years of aging.

Wine Enthusiast
Mouthcoating, this is a full-bodied wine with small amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Tar, leather, cedar and black cherry stand out as characteristics, with added weight from the heavier, darker elements of chocolate and oak. Drink now through 2022. Cellar Selection

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc, has interesting charcuterie, meaty smells and roasted herbs in the nose, followed by black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. It is a Mediterranean style of Cabernet Sauvignon that has lush, soft tannin, a dense ruby/purple color and immediate drinkability. However, there's no doubt it can age well for another 5-10 years.

Salvestrin, California
Salvestrin Winery Image
It began when Italian immigrants John and Emma Salvestrin fell in love with St. Helena while visiting friends in the early 1920s. In 1932 they purchased a portion of the historic Crane Ranch, including the Victorian home of Dr. Crane. With the repeal of prohibition in 1933, they started selling grapes as the wine industry began to grown again.

Ed Salvestrin, who grew up on the family vineyard, continued to grow quality grapes through the 60s, 70s, and 80s preserving the family legacy for future generations. He still lives on the site and frequently tends to his fruit trees when he's not helping out in the vineyard.

In 1987, Rich Salvestrin completed his degree in viticulture from Fresno State University. He returned to the family vineyard to help farm and also to expand the family's grape growing business to include winemaking. 1994 was the inaugural vintage of Salvestrin Cabernet Sauvignon and in 2001 the estate winery was constructed amongst the family vines.

Today, the fourth generation Salvestrin girls are growing up on the family vineyard.

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 wine. 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.
