and Critic Favorite (96 Jeb Dunnuck, 94+ Robert Parker) by Vivino, this wine is flying off the shelf FAST!

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon has an amazing aroma that jumps out of the glass. Balance and elegance, yet structure, power and complexity. The owners were not interested in a high alcohol, over ripe, dessert wine of a Cabernet, yet instead, a wine that had the typicity of the Valley and specifically of the Stags Leap AVA. Dark cherry and blackberry, cocoa and mocha with a slight dusty quality that represented the vineyard. This combined with moderate alcohol and tannins, 25% new French oak for 2 years in barrel and an intensity in the mouth, structured, round and finishing long with each of these elements.

96 Points Jeb Dunnuck

The 2016 Familiar Air is a beauty from the talent of winemaker Benoit Touquette, who’s also the genius behind the wines of Realm, Fait-Main, and others. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot was brought up in 80% new French oak, it’s a full-bodied, ripe, sexy Cabernet that has powerful notes of ground herbs, graphite, earth, and both blackberries and cassis. As Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon goes, it’s a rocking value as well as a terrific wine.

94 Points Robert Parker

Composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 4% Syrah and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon displays a deep garnet-purple color and fragrant notes of red roses, red and black currants, menthol and violets with touches of cinnamon stick and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, muscular and with a firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins, the finish is not just persistent, it is thought-provoking and refreshing such that it keeps you coming back for more. Although it is drinking well now, it should have more to give with 2-3 years in the cellar and continue to give pleasure over the following 15 years
