Hunt and Harvest Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Chris Hall and his family (Long Meadow Ranch Winery) have been farming in Napa Valley since 1989. They practice organic farming as well as raising a herd of grass-fed highland beef cattle and producing estate grown extra-virgin olive oil, organic fruits and vegetables. They even have a restaurant at the famous Long Meadow Ranch winery just off the main Napa Hwy which is a true farm to table experience.
Hunt and Harvest is Chris' passion to share well-made Napa Valley wines from top quality vineyards that he has formed relationships with year after year. 2016 was an early bud break year with wet spring soils and long growing season. Met with average summer temperatures, which slowed the development and reduced yields. The result was a small crop of extremely well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly.
The nose is layered with red, blue and black berry fruit rounded out by brambly blackcurrant and a touch of oak. The palate is fruit forward, medium plus body with soft tannins and a hint of oak and vanilla spice. 14.5% alc. Pair with steak, lamb, strong cheeses and mashed potatoes.
