Wines included in a case
Jacuzzi Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
This powerful Cabernet opens with enticing notes of cassis, crushed blackberries and dark plums while on the palate there are hints of cracked black peppercorns, green bell pepper, and sweet spices. The first sip reveals a generous full body, smooth tannins, and a well-developed structure which will help the wine to age gracefully over the next five or so years.
The fruit for this wine is sourced from the 20 year old Campbell vineyard which is planted on the old sand dunes that characterise the land around the town of Knightsen. The white sand reflects sunlight during the summer days, helping the grapes to ripen perfectly, and cooling breezes from the nearby river help to preserve freshness and balance. Before bottling the young wine is aged in oak barrels for 15 months to add extra complexity and depth.
The Jacuzzi Family Vineyards was established in 2005 by Fred and Nancy Cline in homage to Fred’s grandfather, Valeriano Jacuzzi, who with his brothers created the spa baths that bear his name. The property was built in the Tuscan style and modelled on the Jacuzzi family’s ancestral home in Italy. Today Fred and Nancy continue to honour their Italian heritage by making American wines with a Tuscan soul.
Round Pond Kith & Kin Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Round Pound winery was founded in the early 1980s after Bob and Jan MacDonnell purchased their first plot in Napa’s prized Rutherford Valley. Today the property has grown to a 468-acre farm and winery run by Bob and Jan’s children, Miles MacDonnell and Ryan MacDonnell. The estate is blessed with exceptional alluvial soils thanks to the nearby Conn Creek and Napa River which left deposits here thousands of years ago.
This powerful Cabernet is named after the Old English for “friends and family”, a reference to the fact that the fruit is sourced from across the Napa Valley yet retains a hearty Rutherford soul. The bottling is inspired by the very first wine made by the MacDonnells on the estate in 1992 which was initially just made to be shared with friends and family.
The nose explodes with ripe cassis, blackberries and dark cherries while the first sip reveals a full body, firm tannins, and well-defined structure which will respond very well to further cellaring over the next eight years or so. Bold and full-flavoured with plenty of juicy dark fruit, this is a great wine to enjoy alongside a prime steak and fries or generous platter of succulent barbecued ribs.
Orin Swift Cabernet Sauvignon Palermo 2017
Needs an hour to open up, decant if unable to wait.
Of all the wines that Dave Phinney makes, he looks to this wine to be his most diverse Cabernet Sauvignon. He meticulously selects grapes from the major growing regions of Napa Valley using his expansive network of vineyards. This exhaustive work is meant to showcase the vast styles, microclimates and soil profiles of these vineyards. Like a mad scientist, the wines from different sites are blended together to find the perfect balance.
With two consecutive near perfect harvests, this may be the best Cabernet Sauvignon ever made by Orin Swift.
The nose and taste are as you would hope for and expect from a quality Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Toasted oak and ripe dark berries linger on the nose with a subtle touch of cassis. When tasted, the wine does not attack. It gently lingers on the palate for a moment before evolving into a full and serious wine with amazing concentration of flavor. The flavors that are most prevalent include kirsch/cherry notes, black currant, raspberry and a welcome slightly dusty finish.
The lively tannins and dark fruit make it a phenomenal accompaniment to fattier red meat dishes like grilled lamb chops or a hanger steak. The tannins will cut through the glycerol mouth feel of the fattiness and clear the palate for the next bite.
Orin Swift Cellars is owned and operated by David Swift Phinney. After falling in love with wine on a trip to Florence, Italy, he worked as a temporary harvester for Robert Mondavi Winery before starting Orin Swift Cellars in 1998. Orin comes from his father’s middle name while Swift is his mother’s maiden name.
Dry Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The Dry Creek Valley AVA in Sonoma County has a grape growing history which goes back over 140 years thanks to the warm and sunny climate which is ideally suited to viticulture. Dry Creek Vineyard is of particular importance to the region since the winery was the first to be established in the Valley after Prohibition. The estate was founded in 1972 by David S. Stare whose vision for the region helped to transform Dry Creek Valley from a small collection of family fruit farms to a well-known wine region.
Lovers of big Californian Cabernets will be won over by the bold flavour profile of this stunning red wine from Dry Creek Vineyard. Although the Dry Creek Valley AVA is best known for its hearty Zinfandels, the region has almost as many acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon as to Zinfandel. The dry climate and iron rich soils on the estate help to produce Cabernet grapes which are fruit forward and finely balanced.
To add extra complexity the winery adds modest amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot to the Cabernet Sauvignon base. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for 19 months to allow all of the components to come together harmoniously. This creates an intense red which exudes rich blackcurrant, cherry and dark berry flavours and aromas and offers a generous full body and firm tannins. The long finish and concentrated flavour profile make this an excellent partner for red meats and hearty stews.
Folie a Deux Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Folie a Deux or “madness for two” was founded in 1981 by two pyschiatrists with a passion for wine. The name of the winery refers to a shared psychiatric syndrome where the delusional beliefs of one person are transferred to another. In this case, the founders’ shared passion for wine drove them to take the plunge into the unfamiliar territory of winemaking.
Today Folie a Deux specialises in making classic Sonoma wines which express the typicity of the region’s outstanding different terroirs. This bottling is crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from the Alexander Valley. Here the well-draining volcanic hillsides, warm sunny days and cooling ocean breezes provide ideal conditions for growing top quality Cabernet.
Following the harvest the grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks and the young wine is then aged in French oak and American oak barrels for 22 months for extra polish and complexity. This extended ageing process adds subtle hints of toast, woodsmoke and cigar box spice to the rich dark berry, plum and cherry notes from the Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate there is a generous full body, smooth and ripe tannins and a very long finish.
Girard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
This sumptuous Napa Cabernet opens with seductive notes of coffee, leather, and crushed wild blackberries. The first sip reveals a generous full body, firm tannins, and rich dark cherry, plum, dark chocolate and baking spice flavours which linger long on the tongue. The intense flavour profile makes this an ideal partner for hearty red meat dishes like beef bourguignon or a fine steak as well as barbecued meats.
The fruit of a father and son’s dream to make authentic Napa wines, Girard was founded in 1975 and has quickly established itself as a benchmark for reasonably-priced, good quality wine in the valley. Over the decades the winery has forged excellent relationships with its partner growers which allows them to source top quality fruit every vintage from Napa’s finest appellations.
This Cabernet is the fruit of Girard’s close partnerships with their growers and is crafted with grapes from prime plots in St Helena, Rutherford, Atlas Peak, Yountville and Diamond Mountain. The winery adds a small amount of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc to the Cabernet to add extra complexity, a softness of texture and savoury undertones to the finished wine.
