The big fruit and structure are the drive of this extremely full bodied red wine. A really great bottle of wine from an exceptional producer.
From Napa Valley Cabernet master Joe Wagner. A seamless blend of crème de cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves, charred meat, and blackberry pie along with hints of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry, spice and vanillin. Rich and satisfying flavors of dark chocolate, yogurt, molasses, brown sugar and rhubarb notes presented in perfect balance with higher-toned fruit emphasis.
For Napa Valley Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, the winemaking process started by picking fruit at optimum physiological maturity. Once in the cellar, we kept wine lots separated by individual vineyard. The wine underwent extended maceration up to 60 days in some cases, and we re-evaluated the progress of each lot before moving the wine to classic Bordeaux and Burgundy barrels (70% new oak, 30% seasoned) where it underwent malolactic fermentation, and was racked every 4 to 6 months until blending 20 months later.
Drawing from a patchwork of six prime Napa Valley AVAs to create full-bodied, rich, and decadent wines, Quilt exemplifies the classic structure of wines from the region, while the blending of fruit from a variety of vineyards allows the wines to maintain more complexity and a better style consistency from vintage to vintage.
