2016 Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Pellet Vineyard, Napa Valley

Kitty-corner to our famed Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard, this vineyard nestled on the same alluvial soils and is the original homestead of Dr. Crane’s winemaker (and the first winemaker in Napa Valley) Henry Pellet. The vineyard has matured tremendously over the past 2 years, showing the textures, verve and anise undertones of its prestigious neighbors. Dark garnet to the rim with a slight purple hue, the clarity of this wine shows off its overall brightness, purity and depth. Scents of dark and red raspberries so strong you don't even have to put your nose to the glass.  The mid palate is filled with spice box, herbs of Provence and mocha, setting the stage for rollercoaster of complexities and multi-level layers.  A true cornucopia of cool-toned red/blue fruits, graphite and coffee undertones; this twenty-sixteen is balanced, on point, long and focused. Give this wine a year or two in bottle to bring together the subtle nuances and hidden layers.
