2018 Neal Family Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
“Mark Neal manages hundreds of acres of vineyard land throughout Napa Valley and farms his own vineyard (certified organic) both on Howell Mountain and in Rutherford. This cassis-rich offers both valley-floor richness and mountain-vineyard structure; look also for his nectarine-scented 2021 Vermentino.”
Writer: Ray Isle, Food & Wine Magazine, September 2022
Our 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from our Howell Mountain Estate and Rutherford Dust Estate vineyards. This dark crimson wine has an excellent depth of color. Generous aromas show a harmony of fruit and oak seamlessly melded together.
A full and even palate, the marriage of fruit and oak continues with red and black fruit, caramel, and savory characters. The concentrated, dense texture finishes with fine cocoa powdered tannins. Nuances of mint and notes reminiscent of cedar and sandalwood add complexity.
100% Napa Valley AVA – 100% Estate Grown – 100% Certified Organically Farmed
This elegant and medium-bodied white Italian varietal has incredible aromas of white nectarine, yellow apple, and spiced pears.
The palate is noticeably round & voluminous that leaves beads of lemon citrus and minerality. Some undertone characteristics of summer squash, almonds, and citrus curd combine beautifully with the fresh fruit for a powerful palate.d Napa Valley Estate orchards.
