ICYMI Thomas Rivers Brown’s VALUE Napa Cabernet

The farmer works to produce the best crop possible, knowing once it leaves their hands, they no longer have control. The winemaker, regardless of skill and ability, can only work with what comes through the winery doors. Matt Hardin, a 6th-generation Napa resident, and farmer, is a partner in Barbour Vineyards, one of the most renowned vineyard management companies in Northern California. Thomas Rivers Brown, the winemaker for some of Napa and Sonoma’s most iconic labels (Schrader Cellars, Outpost, and his own Rivers-Marie & Aston), has more than 20+ 100-point wines on his resume.
Working together for many years on many different projects, a friendship was developed. Out of that friendship the idea of working together to make wine, utilizing the strengths of the other, Caterwaul was born.

This amazing Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from one of the most historic and pedigreed sites in Stags Leap. An alluring wine that is dense, plush, and beautifully layered in the glass. Bright aromatics play off the super-ripe, racy fruit in a wine that conveys the essence of the vintage and this site to great effect. Hints of pomegranate and white flowers add a decidedly exotic touch to the explosive finish.

Winemaker Notes: “This vintage of Caterwaul expresses an impressive array of decadent fruit, exotic spice and mouth-watering structure. In the glass, the wine exhibits a completely opaque, deep purple hue with a dark violet halo. Aromas swell from the glass in waves of black cherry, plum reduction, aromatic wood, eucalyptus and pine bough. The palate is marked by a very sleek, polished mouth-feel. Complex notes of roasted meat, cassis, quince, macerated blackberry and nutmeg are intricately layered, framed by a complimentary acidity. This wine offers a wealth of pure Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon character that is readily accessible today and should age well in the cellar for decades.”

Jeb Dunnuck 94 Points (prev): “A perennial value that readers should snatch up, the Caterwaul Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley boasts a spicy, red and black-fruited, tobacco and cedar-driven profile as well as full-bodied richness on the palate. It's fruit loaded and has a round, elegant mouthfeel, supple tannins, and a great finish. It’s well worth seeking out and ideal for drinking over the coming 10-15 years.”
