Thriller… THOMAS RIVERS BROWN 97 & 95 POINT CABS

In 1997, while visiting the Napa Valley, Dr. Revana discovered a small parcel of prime vineyard land in St. Helena.  He immediately sensed the property’s potential. The area was already known for producing some of the world’s most sought after Cabernet Sauvignon and the property’s gravelly soils, sloped pitch, and excellent exposures seemed perfect for growing grapes. Studies of the soil composition confirmed that it was an ideal location for premium Bordeaux varieties. In 1998, Dr. Revana hired acclaimed vineyard manager Jim Barbour to plant and maintain the 9-acre estate vineyard. Renowned winemaker Heidi Barrett has been responsible for crafting the exceptional wines of the Revana Estate vineyard since its first vintage in 2001. She has left an indelible imprint and today winemaker Thomas Brown continues the tradition of making world-class Cabernet Sauvignon in the Revana style.

Robert Parker 97 Points: “The best of the three ( and it’s a pretty spectacular wine) is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena. Gorgeously opaque blue/purple in color, the wine offers up notes of blueberry and blackberry fruit, some licorice and graphite, followed by a full-bodied, layered and opulent wine with terrific fruit intensity, great purity, and class and presence on the palate. This is sensational stuff, and the best wine I have ever tasted from Revana. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.”

Thomas Rivers Brown Notes: “Nose = Initial impressions give notes of eucalyptus and floral components, reminiscent of lilac and rose hips. Hints of black olive and deep plum round out the bouquet. Palate  = The generous mouthfeel on the palate reveals deep blue fruit and toasted brioche, giving way to layers of toffee, baking chocolate and clove accenting the lush, lingering finish.”

Wine Spectator 95 Points: “Pure, rich, dense and driven by extracted blackberry, boysenberry, licorice, currant, cedar and cigar box nuances. Most impressive for the direct and authoritative presence. Best from 2020 through 2038.”
