A Cult Production Napa Cab under $40

About the Band: Born from a monthly tasting group of seven Napa Valley wine & taste makers—Barrett Anderson from 100 Point wineries (Lokoya & Cardinale), Mark Porembski (formerly Araujo, makes Anomoly & Zeitgeist), Jason Heller (Master Sommelier with a CV at Harlan, Bond & Dana Estate), Cameron Hobel (Hobel Winery), Brennan Anderson (Foley), Dan Petroski (Larkmead 100 Pointers) and Stephane Vivier (Hyde de Villaine)—each highly regarded among their peers for their contributions to the wine profession. Together, they pooled their resources, talents and relationships to access some of Napa Valley’s best, sustainably-farmed fruit and all the winemaking necessities to get their wine into bottle.

Winemaker Notes: “Two-thousand-sixteen was a perfect vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon. A cool, wet winter led to deeper, darker skins and a warm spring / summer fostered slow, balanced ripening and vibrant, red fruit. This wine leads with blue and black fruit on the nose, and with a little time in the glass, develops notes of graphite and violets. A cassis-like viscosity coats the entire palate, unveiling Morello cherry and the ripe flesh of a plum, finishing with a hint of bay leaf. The acid and fine tannins will allow for complexity to develop over the next 3-5 years in bottle, but the overall balance of the vintage allows for this wine to be enjoyed now.”
