Classic Napa

Classic Cuvée Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Took quite a while to fully reveal itself. Now having breathed at 8000 ft for 24 hours it has opened up beautifully. Casis, vanilla, oak, and cardamom all in blissful harmony. — 12 days ago

If you haven’t had the 16 yet, don’t miss it. I thought the 13 was fantastic and the 16 is even better. Cheers! 🍷

@David T i haven’t tried the ‘16 Phelps yet. I had the ‘15 in a side by side tasting of a bunch of Napa and Sonoma Cabs and overall I actually preferred the 2015’s. I know that 2016 is considered to be a stellar year, but some seemed overly fruit-forward and lacking a little acidity for me. I’ll be sure to try the ‘16 Phelps though.

Wine can hit each of differently but, I do not believe you will experience that with the Phelps 2016! Cheers! 🍷

Really good classic Napa red. Easy to drink on its own but would probably pair well with meaty meals also — 4 days ago

NVD Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

TGIF! Poking around trying to make room in the wine cooler for a new shipment and decided it was time for a big big Friday pizza wine after the Arnold Palmer Golf Classic. Arkenstone’s Cabernet Sauvignon has the right spice and fruit blend for the job. The NVD was young but opened up nicely very quickly. God bless winemaker Sam Kaplan! — 17 days ago
