Holiday 2022

The holidays are a special time of the year to celebrate with family and friends, give thanks to those we appreciate most, and create wonderful memories that will be shared and passed down through the generations.  In our family, food and wine are at the center of these moments, along with the people we love.   

As we head into the holiday season, we hope you will share the joy of wine and include Neal Family wines at your dinner table, gift to your clients and colleagues, or simply enjoy during a quiet moment.  It is an honor to be a small part of your holiday celebration and we are grateful for your ongoing support of our sustainable farming, wines, and family. 

Wishing you a healthy and joyful holiday season. 

In gratitude,
— Mark & Laura  Neal

The holidays call for special wines, which means it’s the perfect time to break out large format bottles.  Believing wine is meant to be shared, Mark Neal has hand-selected the following 1.5L bottles which are ideal for your gatherings of 6-8 people.  As a guide, 1.5L is the equivalent of two standard 750-ml bottles. 
These magnums are aged to perfection and celebration ready!

2003 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 

An intoxicating mixture of cherries, black cassis, sweet oak, violet and cigar box spice rises from the glass. Layers of ripe Bing cherries, raspberries and semi-sweet cocoa dominate the mid-palate giving this wine a nice backbone and plenty of structure. The fruit is present with firm tannin and a nice acidity provides a beautiful balance. Brown sugar and a crème brulée induced finish that lingers for more than 30 seconds. Not a flamboyant, in your face type of wine, but rather an elegant, restrained and seductive style to lure you in.

2006 One Bridge Lane Cabernet Sauvignon 

Located on the lower slopes of Mt. Veeder and west of the city of Napa, this vineyard is our coolest site for Cabernet. Although small, it has some of the most diverse ripening characteristics of the Neal Family Cabernet. This year produced a big wine, starting with powerful aromas from the French oak and the fruit. Hints of the surrounding forest contribute to a spice and cassis character. Earthy and cocoa powder textures make the tannins intense yet velvety.

2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Our 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits classic, old and new world characters of the varietal with one of the broadest spectrums of aromas and flavors we’ve seen from these vineyards. Very dark in color, there are cooler climate notes mixed with the ripe fruit flavors typical of warm seasons. Cassis, pepper, plum, berry, cocoa and nutmeg-like spice make up some of the aromas after short decanting. Black tea, leather, raspberry candy, ripe cherry and pepper flavors are carried by persistent tannins, creating a lingering, dark fruit finish.
