Tasting Notes

We were so happy with the 2013 Kalinda Napa Cabernet that we went back to the same well for the 2014. From another exceptional year for Napa Cabernet, this wine is lush and quite rich with tons of cassis on the nose and palate. Still quite young and showing some rounded tannins, I would cellar this beauty for five years minimum, but if you must drink it, decant one hour at least and serve with a hearty meat course. One hint: the property whence the grapes came is located quite close to a town that really does not have a wine shop in it. - KL Staffer Drink from 2016 to 2026

    Produced for us from the same famous Napa Valley Cabernet-producing winery that is located on the eastern slopes of Howell Mountain and which created our 2013, this deeply colored Gem offers opulent, lush, precise aromas of currants, cassis and blackberries, with just a hint of cedary, toasty oak as a back note. These qualities are well-defined in the mouth both on entry and in its viscous mid-range, with superb depth and broadness of flavor, excellent structure and concentration, and a fleshy, focused long finish. Rusty has demanded that I bring home cases of this exceptional, complex Gem to consume and age over the next 10 to 15 years, although, as with most great Cabernets, with decanting and airing of one to two hours, it is very approachable now. GREAT VALUE! ***** 14.5% ABV *****
