“The bouquet is loaded with cassis, blackberry liqueur, plum and sage. The palate shows ample dark fruit, spice, and structure that suggests that it will age beautifully for a few years in the cellar. This is a fabulous bottle of wine to drink now and will continue to evolve for at least another 5-7.” - California Wine Advisors

BACKGROUND
The Band of Vintners is a labor of love for seven wine business friends who set out to craft the finest Napa Cabernet, derived from fruit nurtured in only top sites, that drinks well above its price point. Band members include Mark Porembski, Stephane Vivier, Dan Petroski, Cameron Hobel, Barrett Anderson, Brennan Anderson and Jason Heller who pooled their insider knowledge, called in favors and have crafted a wine that is the culmination of serious fruit and equally serious talent. This wine was aged for eighteen months in once-used French oak, resulting in a wine with incredibly integrated tannins that allows the pedigreed fruit a sense of place and varietal expression unadulterated by overt use of new oak. According to the band, the outcome, “is a wine we believe makes a strong case for one of the best quality to price ratios in the Napa Valley and something we’re proud to share with our friends, family, and neighbors.”
