K&L Notes

From a hot, dry vintage, this blend was sourced from both the Napa Valley floor and the Vaca Mountain range to create a yin-yang of concentration and complexity in the fruit. Tasting notes from the producer: "Dark plum, cocoa, blackberry and sage aromas with powerful, well-delineated flavors of dark-chocolate-covered cherry, macerated strawberry, wild herbs, and minerals. Well balanced with fine tannins, this wine is deep and multi-dimensional. Will play well for 15-20 years."

    Ask any K&L staffer, but around here Banshee is synonymous with straightforward, true quality wine at a price-point anything but exorbitant. The 2014 Banshee Cab is a Napa classic, though coming from a newer label. With the blend of valley floor fruit, and mountain fruit, the complexity builds nicely, and the wine shows both great structure, and soft, open texture. Probably one of our best Napa cabs price-to-quality wise.

    A heavyweight Napa cab at an outstanding price. The fruit is sourced from Howell Mountain (brightness, minerality), Calistoga (distinct aromas), St. Helena (fleshy texture), and Rutherford (depth of flavor), which are some of the most sought-after regions in Napa. It is rich with blackberries and cassis, so make sure to decant it for a couple of hours and watch it unfold. Cellar it for up to 20 years, so brag a few!
