Why is Our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Library Selection Showing So Well?
The 2011 Vintage & ‘Perception vs Reality’ | $1 Shipping on 3 Bottles or More
Seven years later, and our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has truly come into its own! Why? Spring 2011 was cold and wet, which led to a late fruit set. Spring was followed by a mild summer and a harvest that extended into November. Instead of the usual warm dry weather of Napa Valley, the vintage was more like Bordeaux. Many were too quick to judge to the vintage. Patience…
Here’s Why Cooler Vintages (Think Bordeaux) Take Longer to Mature
A compound called pyrazines, which impart flavors from bell pepper (bad) to olive oil and savory herbs (good) are brought forward in cooler vintages. Pyrazines also extend the aging of wines, which is why our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is just hitting its stride. The hints of olive oil and sage make this wine excellent for food pairings!
