This six bottle collection features an exclusive selection of highly rate, collector favorites from Napa Valley. You will receive two bottles each of the following wines:

Lewis Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve 2016 - 97+ CWA
“This opulent and alluring new Cabernet delivers supreme gratification tonight while the luxurious texture and deftly integrated tannins (plus creamy new oak) bode well for enjoyment over the next decade. A voluptuous core of dark cherry and cassis on the front palate introduce hints of roasted espresso and allspice. We savored the lavish amounts of kirsch, mocha and blackberry flavors supported by supple, ultra fine-grained tannins. The statuesque finish includes notes of exuberant toasted oak and vanilla. A HUGE crowd pleaser ready to deliver. Collectors may enjoy this thoroughbred now (after decanting) for a 97 point experience, evolving into 98 points and beyond through 2029.” - California Wine Advisors     

Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2016 - 97 CWA
“One of Napa Valley’s finest values year in, year out, the “Baby Insignia” returns in full form with the oh so lovable 2016 vintage. A classy nose and the silky palate are rich in dark fruits and sexy new oak, black cherry, plum, cassis, sage, blackberry, baking cocoa, exotic sweet spices, graphite and pencil lead, enticing all senses at once. Ripe and rich, with dusty tannins lingering on the superbly balanced, graceful finish. Tremendous bang for the buck.” - California Wine Advisors   

Hobel Cabernet Sauvignon Napa The Figure 2016 - 96+ CWA
“Imagine alternating between milk chocolate covered blackberries and s'mores tossed in baking spices. Lush, big, bodacious, jammy, spicy, and loaded with blueberry cream, cassis, plum, currant, sage, vanilla and gloriously toasted oak. A genuine crowd pleaser for aficionados of hedonistic Napa reds.” - California Wine Advisors
