Vine Cliff 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon "Original Blend"
Leather, tobacco and mocha combine effortlessly in this medium-bodied wine, a juicy, broad expression of the variety that drinks well. Black cherry and currant fruit flavors integrate into the quiet oak.
One of Napa's most historic wineries, Vine Cliff Winery was established in 1871, when 500 acres were carved out of the original George Yount estate (yes, the ‘Yountville’ Yount). One of the first bonded wineries in the United States (bonded winery #4), and the first in Napa to plant Bordeaux varietals on a commercial scale, Vine Cliff was one of the region’s most successful wineries through the end of the 19th Century. A series of natural problems drove the winery under in the early 20th Century, with the land remaining fallow until it was purchased by Nell Sweeney for her family in 1985. Now, Rob Sweeney, the family’s oldest son, has taken charge and this historic vineyard and winery is 200% back!
