Hidden Secret Cabernet Turns Heads


Steven Kent has slowly been building a reputation of great quality wines, but many of use are very partial to Napa and Bordeaux and forget to look at other appellations and regions.  That said, this 2013 “Ghielmetti” Cabernet bottling will proof that good Cabernet is not just grown in Napa!

Livermore Valley has a long, dedicated history of growing the “Bordeaux” varietals, and in particular Cabernet Sauvignon. In the 1880s, pioneering winegrowers began to discover the potential of the Livermore Valley region. Then, as today, L.V.’s climate and soils closely resemble those of Bordeaux’s famed left bank of the Gironde. By the turn of the last century, Livermore Valley was already far ahead of its Napa Valley neighbor in specializing in the Bordeaux varieties.  Steven Kent is the seventh generation producing wine from this appellation.

This latest release is a real beauty.  The wine offers an intense aroma of crème de cassis, black currant, and floral notes jumping out of the glass. The wine is intense and full in body with gorgeous flavors coating the palate.  Extraordinarily elegant and pure, this wine tastes a lot more expensive than its pricetag!


Winemaker Notes: “The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon – Ghielmetti Estate Vineyard is the finest example of multi-clone Cabernet yet from the site. From an immediately attractive and rich nose of dark plum, black cherry, cocoa and very subtle oak to an entry with opulence of fruit and concision of acidity and tannin, to a mid-palate and finish with both length and balance, this Cabernet is a stunner. Where the Lencioni Vineyard Cabernet offering was red this wine is very dark in fruit; where Lencioni was polished and relatively soft, this wine shows some hardness of tannin in its youth.  Mouthfilling and grippy now, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon – Ghielmetti Estate Vineyard will mature beautifully, softening in tannin, over the next 15-20 years. We believe this wine showcases a vision for Cabernet Sauvignon that is in keeping with the world-class potential of the Livermore Valley.”
