WINEMAKER NOTES
Three generations of the Salvestrin Family have been farming grapes from their Napa Estate Vineyard. Their World-Class Napa Valley wines are meticulously handcrafted, ensuring that every grape remains true to its varietal character and the nutrient soil in which it is grown.

Blend: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Syrah, & 1% Cabernet Franc

Alcohol: 14.8%
92 POINTS - "A dark-fruited nose with plums and blackberries, as well as black truffle and earthy notes. The palate has a supple and even thread of blueberry flavor and supple, layered tannins. A blend of 89 per cent cabernet sauvignon with some merlot, syrah and cabernet franc." - James Suckling

91 POINTS - "From a gem of a vineyard in St. Helena and a mix of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Syrah, and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Crane Vineyard Estate offers a fresh, complex bouquet of plums, blueberries, gravelly minerality, and incense. It's more focused and streamlined compared to the Three D release (which is a 2015), has terrific purity of fruit, medium body, and good length. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years." - Jeb Dunnuck

90 POINTS - "7% Merlot; 3% Syrah; 1% Cabernet Franc. Making a very good aromatic start with a layered nose of black cherries, cassis, toasty oak, cola and a touch of loamy soil, Salvestrin’s basic Napa Valley bottling is a complete, moderately deep Cabernet that, despite its nominal varietal tannins, already shows an attractive sense of tactile polish as well as fine fruity confidence to its lengthy, slightly succulent flavors. It encourages further cellaring without forcefully demanding it, and those willing to exercise even a few years of patience will be handsomely rewarded." - Connoisseurs' Guide

90 POINTS - "Made up of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Syrah and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of cassis, earth, red and black cherries, sage and tobacco. The palate is medium to full-bodied and chewy with an herbal lift....Salvestrin can boast multiple generations farming its vineyards since 1932, so this is by no means a newcomer to the Napa Valley wine scene. These wines never seem to get old, and this will be one our grandchildren can enjoy circa 2050." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Black cherry and blackberry are the first aromatics to shine through on this elegant Cabernet. Full bodied and rich, the tannins are firm yet refined, commanding a robust plush quality. Hints of barrel spices reveal a slight toastiness, which is complemented by cigar box, leather, and plum on the back end.
