Cult 2016 California Cabernet Sauvignon
Cult is is a new project handcrafted by two Napa Valley born and raised wine veterans, Rich Salvestrin and Scott Lloyd. Salvestrin is not only a third generation grape grower, but after obtaining a degree in Viticulture from Fresno State transformed the family business into his namesake St Helena winery. Salvestrin garners exceptional reviews for their handcrafted estate grown wines and sits predominately on Highway 29. General Manager Scott Lloyd holds a MBA in wine from Sonoma State University and has spent a career growing brands for select boutique wineries. This includes Frank Family Vineyards for which he cultivated a trade market and established the winery as a highly-recognized label. Toasty barrel tones frame ripe cherry fruit in this classic Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich and concentrated with smooth integrated tannin the wine builds on the palate and leads to a lengthy ripe finish. This wine will pair nicely with grilled meats and is also great to drink on its own.
