95 Point Napa Cabernet under $50

The Gianulias’ had been farming and making wine for centuries in Greece, so it was only normal that they would do so after emigrating to the US. It started in 1926 when the Gianulias family planted their first vines in the Napa. So decades later they are still at it and they say “Levendi” or “Celebrate Life”Levendi 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon “Sweetwater” Napa Valley

The Sweetwater is back and better than ever. On the nose this youngster offers up gorgeous black currant, black plums  and white pepper aromas. The wine if lush and full in bodied with very lively and forward flavors of black stone fruits, hints of chocolate and a whiff of spice and very modest acidity, balancing it well with the toasty vanilla flavors from the French oak barrels.  This wine is lush, bold yet extremely silky on the mid-palate leading into a long-lasting finish. A pleasant wallet-friendly experience!

95 Point Review: “The grapey/currant syrupy effect is attributable to the sunshine-filled 2013 vintage and this Cab shows it beautifully. The grapes are grown on rocky red-soiled slopes and the wine’s texture – strikingly rich – has a backdrop of slate and dried lavender, chocolate pudding surfaces heroically on the mid-palate. The creamy French oak drives texture further, enveloping the palate in what seems like forever. This is one to watch!”
