    Jesse Katz's Aperture wines are super impressive across the board. We've been carrying them for a few years now and it was obvious that these were going to start picking up huge scores and becoming harder and harder to get. With this enormous 97 point write up from Parker's Advocate, I figured we'd get a few cases and that would be that. However, thanks to our close partnership with the winery, we've just been given another parcel of this powerhouse Cab to share with you! If you're not familiar with Jesse's wines, I typically describe them as having one foot in the old world and one in the new. That's not all that surprising you you consider Katz has worked stints both in the hallowed cellars at Château Pétrus and closer to home at Screaming Eagle in Napa. The pure varietal expression, freshness and elegance of the wine makes one think of Bordeaux. However, the fruit profile is a little riper and fuller than the classic bordelais style, and the overall mouthfeel is super polished and modern. It beautifully captures the exotic, lush, powerful fruit that Alexander Valley fruit can produce, but retains a wonderful, floral lift and a silky, vibrant quality on the palate. Truly the best of both worlds. Given the quality, huge press, and growing cult status of these wines, the price is very reasonable (especially when compared with wines from Napa). This is a wonderfully expressive wine to enjoy now, but will also continue to age beautifully for 10 years and beyond.
