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.
689 Cellars Submission Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
689 Cellars is an exciting project based in California with a name inspired by its founders’ travels in Asia where they were struck by the ancient wisdom and traditions which still play an important role in everyday life. The numbers six, eight and nine are regarded as lucky in Chinese culture; six is connected with happiness and assists us in moving through life with luck and success while the symmetrical shape of number eight hints at eternity and unlimited opportunities. Finally, nine is linked to longevity and is seen as the luckiest number of all.
All of this good fortune manifests itself in the delicious wines made by 689 Cellars from prime Californian grapes. Their Submission Cabernet Sauvignon is a robust, full-flavoured single varietal wine crafted from Sonoma, Napa, Paso Robles and Lodi fruit.
On the nose there are intense notes of cassis, blackberry and crushed cherries while the first sip reveals firm tannins, a generous full body and intense jammy berry flavours which linger long on the palate. Subtle oaky hints blend seamlessly with plum and dark berries, making this a great match for burgers, barbecued ribs or hearty tomato-based pasta dishes.
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.
Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Spotting the untapped potential of the Napa Valley, Robert Mondavi established his now-legendary winery in 1966 with the ambition of producing some of the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignons. Today his name is synonymous with breathtaking premium red blend which catapulted Napa Valley into the limelight as a serious rival to Europe’s great winemaking regions.
Shaped by Mondavi’s perfectionist legacy, this classic Napa Valley Cab is crafted using grapes selected from their famous To Kalin vineyard in Oakville and Wappo Hill Vineyard in Stag’s Leap. After an extended maceration the must is vinified and then matured for 17 months in French oak barrels. During this ageing period the team repeatedly samples the developing wines and decides on the composition of the final blend. Usually this will include small amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc to add further complexity and a smooth texture to the finished wine.
The result of all this attention to detail is a voluptuous Napa Cab which offers outstanding value. The nose explodes with succulent black cherries, plums and leather aromas which evolve into seductive spices, wild berries and lavender on the palate. An excellent introduction to the king of Napa, Cabernet Sauvignon, from the man who put the Valley on the wine map!
