Rewa is yet another venture of ace winemaker extraordinaire Celia Welch. The Rewa vineyard is located in the Coombsville appellation in the South Eastern part of the Napa Valley. The vineyard is planted on shallow rocky white volcanic ash in the slightly cooler growing area of the Napa Valley. Rewa Vineyards represents a significant project from perhaps the best terroir in the budding Coombsville AVA. Only 150 cases of this “gem” were produced. I highly recommend you jump on this now before the press gets a hold of it!

The fourth release from Rewa is a more intense and focused wine. The 2018 Rewa Estate offers up a barrage of aromas and flavors that jump out of the glass on impact. Loads of bright dark stone fruit, a touch of anise and cassis and a whiff of spice on the nose are followed by a very full bodied, intense yet extremely well-balanced bold and structured Cabernet. The palate is loaded with vibrant black stone fruit, a touch of Coombsville minerality and an array of bright, complex fruit that are harmoniously balanced. The wine finishes long with fine grain tannins and long incredible flavors.
Vinous 96 Points: “Rewa’s 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a fabulous wine that really exalts the unique attributes of Coombsville. A whole range of graphite, cured meat, smoke, licorice and menthol add striking layers of complexity to a core of inky dark blue/purplish fruit, with grippy tannins that give the wine shape as well as character. Underbrush, floral and spice notes linger. This is a positively stellar showing from Rewa and winemaker Celia Welch.”
Celia’s Tasting Notes: “The 2018 vintage of Rewa Cabernet Sauvignon is irresistible with notes of fresh violets, dried herbs and boysenberry. The palate begins with black plum, blueberry compote, and cassis with graphite, flint, dried herbs and dried flowers adding interest and further complexity. Although the wine is dense and highly concentrated, the vineyard’s volcanic tuff and cobble soils lend sufficient minerality to the fresh character and structure of this classically styled wine.”
