“Made by Laura Diaz (formerly at Lokoya) and coming mostly from valley floor fruit, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Pleinair is a sexy, flamboyant beauty that boasts a deep purple color, a huge nose of cassis and blueberry fruits, a complex floral character, full body, and a pure, elegant, yet pleasure-bent style that's already a joy to drink.”
Do anything you can to grab what few bottles we have -- this one has it ALL!
Ok, ok...this is one for the record books. I can’t remember the last time a 96-point scoring Napa Cabernet was priced under $40...like ever! Normally $65 this is such an easy buy if you’re not loading up your cart right now we may not be able to help you. Let us break it down for you.The incredible 2016 vintage, one of the top Napa vintages of the 21 century, killer winemaking pedigree (Lokoya), $25 off the normal price, 96 points...need we go on? Don’t sleep on this one, we will sell out.
Finally, a hedonistic, lavishly oaked, deeply extracted, gloriously fruity, super long and structured Napa wine that doesn't cost $100+! The 2016 is sourced from vineyards in Atlas Peak, St. Helena, Diamond Mountain and Howell Mountain and perfectly captures the mountain fruit character with its incredible intensity. Aged 20 months in 53% new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it drinks WAY over its price point!
We only wish we had more! While it lasts!
