A blockbuster new Cabernet blend from Hestan Vineyards. Usually only available to mailing list members we have a small amount of this tiny production Cabernet while our allocation lasts!
Robert Parker: "Major sleeper of not only the vintage, but in its entire concept...stunningly delicious, complex, big-time, sexy style...Off-the-charts in terms of its hedonistic appeal...complex enough to satisfy the intellectual senses as well."
Lee Hudson's vineyard in Napa Valley's Carneros region has come to be synonymous with some of the best winegrapes grown in California, going into some of the State's top Chardonnays (Kistler, Kongsgaard, Patz & Hall, Ramey). His own wine is fantastic but super-limited production. Grab some today before this delicious vintage slips away.
previous vintage 93 Points Robert Parker: "The Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard sings of fresh grapefruit, white peaches and nutmeg with hints of lemongrass and lime blossoms. Medium-bodied with elegant stone fruit layers and a satiny texture, it finishes with a spicy lift.. These are some of the strongest wines I have yet tasted from them, thanks to winemaker Christopher Vandendriessche and consultant John Kongsgaard."
