Winemaker Notes

Our 2006 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. Our 2006 Aida Estate Cabernet will benefit from cellaring from three to 20+ years.

Critical Acclaim

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Cabernet Sauvignon from the Aida Vineyard is becoming one of the most exceptional northern Napa Valley Cabernets, with a production ranging between 600-700 cases. The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Vineyard reveals aromas of melted chocolate, scorched earth, pepper, and creme de cassis. Fashioned from 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot, and a touch of Cabernet Franc, it exhibits a superb texture along with those notions of charcoal and burning embers that come from this rock-laden soil. This full-bodied 2006 is more masculine and muscular than the 2005, without that wine’s complexity (of course, it has been in bottle for less time). While it is a successful wine for the vintage, buyers will need to be patient as it requires 2-3 years of bottle age; it should drink well for 20 years.

Vineyard 29 Winery Image
In 1989, Teresa Norton and Tom Paine came to Napa Valley to retire – a dream that was quickly replaced by another when they learned their estate was prime cabernet sauvignon territory. In a matter of weeks, they were putting in a 3-acre vineyard under the watchful eye of lauded vineyard manager David Abreu and, within a year, planting cuttings from neighbors, Grace Family Vineyards. The first release in 1992 was warmly received by press and public alike.

The turn of the century ushered in the next phase of Vineyard 29. Along with the Vineyard 29 property, Chuck and Anne acquired the historic Aida vineyard in 2000 as a perfect complement to the Vineyard 29 site for expansion of the winery’s portfolio. With a new, state-of-the-art winemaking facility, and the unquestionable skill of winemaker Philippe Melka, all the pieces were in place for Chuck and Anne to lead Vineyard 29 to a new and exciting level of winemaking.

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.
