Winemaker Notes

Aida Estate Cabernet is rich and muscular. Prepare to be immediately captivated by this powerful wine’s deep aromas of shaved cocoa, black cassis and black cherries. On the palate, masculine notes of tar, licorice and burning embers add to this wine’s power and density, while sweet melted chocolate, caramel and warm stone provide plenty of finesse and juiciness. Firm tannins carry this wine through a seemingly endless finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate is a fabulous wine from Chuck and Anne McMinn, who own this vineyard in northern Napa Valley. A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc, aged 21 months in 100% new French oak, there were 742 cases produced in 2005. Absolutely delicious, it is a complex, Mediterranean style of Cabernet Sauvignon, with notes of new saddle leather, lavender, creme de cassis, spice box and licorice in a fragrant, aromatic style. Quite intense, spicy and full-bodied, this gorgeous wine was made under the helmsmanship of Philippe Melka. It was bottled after 21 months in barrel with no fining or filtration. Melka told me that the only change really made over the last decade with this particular Cabernet Sauvignon is that he does less racking than he did initially. This is a fabulously rich, seemingly fully mature wine, but with at least 10-15 years of further aging potential.
