2011 Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Napa Valley

In challenging vintages like 2011, we are thankful for early ripening sites like the Kenefick Ranch Vineyard in Calistoga.  This bench land vineyard nestles up against the Pacific Palisade Mountain 2011 Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Napa Valley range in the warmest part of the Napa Valley.  Combine that with hand-crafted, small production winemaking, we produced one of the nicest Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon's of the vintage.

Dark garnet hues immediately make this wine appealing with aromas of black fruit, graham, anise and vanilla bean that take over the senses.  While the mid palate of this wine resembles the 2008 with its silkiness, the dusty tannin structure is mild and plush bringing this wine together on all levels.

The beautifully long and signature 'Mike Smith finish' make this wine a stand out above the rest.  A short decant will benefit this wine should you decide to open it within a year, look for it to hit its stride in 4-8 years.
