Winemaker Notes

Volker Eisele Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of vineyard blocks from throughout the entire estate. Varying terrain, different clones, and different rootstocks produce a patchwork of flavor identities between the vineyard blocks and their resulting cuvees, brought together in a blend that is essentially a snapshot in time of a dynamic, ever-changing vineyard.

Critical Acclaim

SJ 94
The Somm Journal

This broad-shouldered, silky red blended with 25% Merlot shows cedar and plum within a graceful frame. Aged 22 months in 50% new French oak, it projects greatness with notes of espresso and cocoa. The terroir shines through and the texture is meaty yet distinctly refined.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This is made from the producer's Chiles Valley estate, organically farmed, and blended with 25% Merlot. A bright, perfumed nose of rose and sage leads to a soft, cohesive and well-integrated midpalate of dark cherry, raspberry and hints of vanilla and herb. It shows great length and breadth.

COMMENTARY: The 2015 Volker Eisele Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautifully focused wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine brings beautiful ripe fruit onto the palate with aromas and flavors of black fruits and light oak nuances. Pair it with a country chicken stew. (Tasted: February 21, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
JS 90
James Suckling
A dense and velvety red with berry, chocolate and walnut character. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now or hold.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored with baked blueberries, mulberries and prunes plus underlying spice cake scents and hints of plum pudding and coffee. The mouth is full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins and layers of dried berries and baking spice flavors, finishing with great length.

Volker Eisele Family Estate creates enticing wines from the Napa Valley. Organically farmed since 1974, the Estate produces wines of uncommon balance and finesse. All fruit for our limited production wine is grown in our Chiles Valley District vineyard. The elevation and northwesterly Pacific winds funneling through the valley, create a longer cooler growing season. This combination of factors yield aromatic, crisp fruit with bright acidity and structed tannins. Our decades of experience in farming one vineyard means the quality of our wine is consistent year in, year out.  

 

Our winemakers’ philosophy is, “To use a light hand in crafting varietally-correct wines that make the taster think about where they were grown, and not who made them. 

~ Molly Lippitt, Winemaker

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
