Really nice balance of black fruit and earth. Rich mouthfeel and nice ripe character for a Petit Verdot that’s only 13.4% alc. Cool wine. — 7 days ago

Napa winner good wine with nice mild tannins and body but nice figgy (yes I said figgy) and dark fruit... Good different red worth having now or letting it age #nyc #wine #vsattui — 16 days ago

Dark purple color, velvety smooth, plum, blackberry, toasty. Great price point at ~$24. Easy drinker without food. We’ll see how it goes with some NY pizza shortly. Great label! — 3 days ago

Paradiso Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

V. Sattui Winery’s Paradiso 2014 napa valley cabernet sauvignon blend. Wow. Very different flavors. The bouquet is lavendar and fresh rhubarb pie. The palate is dazzled with big blackberry jam and fig pudding. Then there is an explosion of OAK and spice and everything nice. Then cones the chocolate and vanilla which dissipates into a crisp velvety texture of butter and Moss. It has a dry finish that leaves you wanting more!!!!!! Wow. What a great find. I cant wait to try their straight cab tomorrow — 11 days ago

Our last bottle of this vintage. Nose displays menthol, charcoal and delicate oak. Palate has medium weight with good minerality, similar to granite. Nice relaxed blue fruits with a hint of cinnamon wash over the mid-palate. Finishes with a delicate, maple sweetness. — 2 days ago

Ежевичный джем, гвоздика, зелёная слива, чуть какао. По вкусу не совсем греческое, меньше минерального. Прекрасный баланс — 24 days ago

This baby continues to grow up but I think like every parent I have to say good bye as children do grow up - I will miss the older beauties from Cain - I just think they are better older

Still love the color - deep purple / no transparency at all with edges / smell is demonstrating maturity which has me worried ( just a little) / the wine is chewy dense full bodied after 18 years in a bottle / omg this is good / taste is not full bodied at all but finesse and delicate - with the most enjoyable finish - I love the integration of the franc and Merlot with cab in this vintage - always have - just a Tuesday night but why not enjoy a bottle with charisma and character that says good to see you old friend - smiling
