Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon 375ml 2017

Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon 375ml

¥3,300

This is a 375ml half size bottle.

We believe it is a "textbook" example of this noble variety grown in superb Napa Valley apperations.

It can be enjoyed for several years to come. Cherry, red - and blackcurrant and spices on the nose, with a hint of smoky minerals adding lift. Slightly wound-up on the entry, unfolding to offer jammy dark berry flavors, tones of vanilla, and soft tannins.

Winery Description

TEXTBOOK wines are so named because they consistently exhibit the characteristics that define classic Napa Valley and Oakville District wines: in short, TEXTBOOK wines are ‘textbook’ examples of the finest that Napa Valley has to offer. Owner and winemaker Jonathan Pey draws upon a lifetime of experience in fine wine:  he has overseen winemaking in France, Italy, Portugal, Australia and New Zealand. All grapes are hand-picked from the very best sustainably-farmed Napa Valley vineyards.  Boulder Block vineyard is the primary source for TEXTBOOK Cabernet and is located directly next door to Screaming Eagle; while the main source for the Merlot (Holmes Vineyard) is adjacent to Opus One and Paradigm, and just downslope from Harlan Estate.  The hand-sorted grapes are fermented in small lots, fined in the traditional method with organic egg whites and bottled unfiltered.
