This exclusive collection contains three bottles of exceedingly rare Napa Cabernets that have all recently garnered “Perfect” 100 point ratings from leading sources:   

Dalla Valle Proprietary Red Napa Maya 2016 - 100 RP
“The most incredible array of floral and red fruit layers—kirsch, redcurrant jelly, black raspberries, lilacs, red roses and lavender—with achingly beautiful wafts of cigar box, pencil lead, camphor, cinnamon stick and forest floor. …layer upon layer of perfumed black and red fruits with a very firm, finely grained texture and an epically long, mineral-laced finish.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015 - 100 RP
“….a core of warm blackcurrants, kirsch and wild blueberries, plus wafts of fallen leaves and amazing intensity of perfumed red, black and blue fruit flavors supported by exquisitely fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length and depth. Truly stunning.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 

Tor Cabernet Sauvignon Vine Hill Ranch 2017 - 100 IWR
“2017 is the first vintage that Tor has produced a Cabernet Sauvignon from Vine Hill Ranch and it is a total beauty. A total success from Tor and his team with this utterly fascinating wine from this iconic site.” - International Wine Report
