It’s good to be a local! Sometimes an overheard conversation at the market leads to amazing buys like this. This is a perfectly aged Napa wine, and sadly, was the last vintage from this estate. The blend is 80% cabernet sauvignon and the rest merlot made by Craig Becker, who formerly worked at Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Spring Mountain Vineyard and is currently working at Somerston Estate. The wine is sourced from the prime cut of the expansive Somerston vineyard in the Eastern hills of Napa Valley, from the same rows that used to supply Heidi Barrett’s Amuse Bouche.

Perfectly aged, pristine and incredibly complex cab from the highly-praised 2009 vintage... Our heart is racing just writing this, but wait until you put your nose in the glass! This has wonderful sandalwood, cigar box, dusty cherry, spice and mushroom that draw you in, but the freshness and ripeness here is what takes this to the next level. The flavors and mouthfeel are broad and ripe, with just the right amount of oak still kicking to balance this out.

A stunning effort well worth your cab-loving attention. Don't miss...!
