Bernard Magrez Napa Valley - Cabernet Sauvignon

Hand harvested, grapes hand-picked from clusters and highly-selective sorting. Cold maceration prior to fermentation. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is run off into new French-oak barrels. Aged on lees 18-24 months into new fine-grain French-oak barrels.

Commentary

The 2010 vintage is smooth and harmonious, with notes of plum, black cherries and blackberries. A pure, concentrated wine, with full-bodied depth, finishing with great, intense length. The Napa Valley can be drunk immediately or until 2022.
