$80.00

Description

The Vineyard
We are proud to introduce the second vintage of the Spell Cabernet.  As with all the Spell wines, this wine is defined by its balance, true varietal character and unique vineyard terroir.  It exemplifies Napa Valley in its most noble and purest expression.

Winemaker Notes
From a vineyard further down the valley than the 2015, this wine possesses more concentration of fruit. Aromas of  cassis, blackberry, violets, baking spice, mocha, tobacco and sweet oak fill the glass.   Flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, cocoa nib, and dried herbs are balanced by smooth valley tannins. Extremely pleasing now, the structure and acidity will allow this wine to age gracefully for a decade or more.

Vinification
Vineyard: Northern Napa Valley Vineyards
Oak: 100% French; 50% new oak and 50% twice used
Alc: 14.8%
Bottled: August 22, 2018
Cases Produced: 75
