La Pelle 2017 Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

$ 189.99
For partners Maayan Koschitzky, Miguel Luna and Pete Richmond, La Pelle (the shovel, translated) is where their dreams came together and where their ground floor IS the vineyard, as well as the ultimate expression of the terroir in the bottle.

The La Pelle Reserve is a blend composed mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The wine is selected from our best lots and aged for 21 months in 80% new French Oak barrels. Dark and powerful with excellent structure, the wine has a vibrant texture and layers of well-integrated tannins. Amongst the layers of dark cherry and plum, there lies a hint of dark chocolate and a long, lingering finish. The wine is drinking well young but is built to age for years to come. Only 120 cases produced.
