Overachiever Napa Cab at ½ the Price

In 1979 Bill and Mary Seavey bought the present Seavey Vineyard from an old family friend. It had been a vineyard in the 1870s, although by the 1970s it was a cattle ranch. While Bill continued his San Francisco law practice, Mary and he set about restoring the property and replanting the former vineyard. The four Seavey sons spent high school and college vacations working at the vineyard, and the Seavey daughter and her two daughters came out from Boston to help from time to time. The vineyard was completely replanted in 1983 and the first Cabernet was released in 1990 which received a 95 Point rating from Robert Parker!  Many of his wines received ratings up to 99 points!  So a real legacy. Sadly Mary passed away in 2008 and Bill left us last year, but their memory will last forever!
Seavey 2013 “Caravina” Cabernet, Napa Valley

This wine is bursting with blackberries, vanilla, smoky tobacco and dark chocolate. On the palate this opulent youngster offers up gobs of red and black stone fruit, touch of spice and mint.  The wine finishes with a soft silky finish.  A great expression and at $67.00 it is ½ the price of their other Cabernet!  A well valued purchase!

Galloni 94 Points:Seavey’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Caravina is one of the very finest values in Napa Valley. Supple, radiant and expressive, the 2013 is a pure joy to taste, as it expresses plenty of site-specific nuance in a more approachable style than the estate’s flagships. Bright red cherry, plum, spice, mint, licorice and sweet floral notes meld into the soft, open-knit finish. This is a real overachiever, especially for the price.”
