"New Generation Winemaker Revisits “Old Napa” Style. Inspired by the “Old Napa” style of Napa Valley, when pioneer winemakers made Cabernet Sauvignon that were true to the varietal characteristics of the grape and intervention in the fields and winemaking process was kept to a minimum." -Importer
"Winemaker Alan Viader of VIADER Vineyards and Winery is committed to exploring the latest organic and biodynamic viticultural practices in conjunction with his basic winemaking principal, simply put, “the wine is made in the vineyard.”
Wilson & Wilson 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon shows bright, gorgeous colors of rich violet with ruby hues. On the nose, aromas of purple flowers, cassis, cherry, and dark red berries are enhanced by pronounced spices of sweet roasted tobacco, anise, red licorice and nutmeg. Subtle hints of violet, wet turned earth, cocoa and chocolate round out the aromatics. The palate delivers, concentrated red fruits and brown spices mingled with bitter chocolate, lavender and almonds, culminating in a silky, balanced long finish. The wine has a firm structure and shows a balance of great acidity with high but firm already integrated fine tannins. Wilson & Wilson is read to drink today and will age gracefully for 10-15 years in the bottle."
