Bonanno Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

A deep ruby red, this seductive Cab shows classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of spice and sage followed by a mix of blueberries and blackberries with fresh raspberry notes. With a nice balance of acid and well integrated tannins, this wine is smooth, supple and sleek in the mouth: it is well balanced across the palate showcasing flavors of dark fruit, currants and hints of mineral and anise.The 2011 Napa Valley harvest was lighter and later than normal with flavors developing at lower sugar levels, giving winemakers the opportunity to make flavorful, elegant wines. A wet winter and spring delayed bloom and hindered fruit set, resulting in shatter in some regions, which decreased the overall crop load. A generally cool summer prolonged the growing season and harvest started very late in most areas." -Winery

BonAnno Wine:
Meaning "good year," BonAnno, the Italian saying heralds the celebration of the New Year, and is a fortuitous play on Vintner Matthew Bonnano's last name. With their first release in 2004, BonAnno Cabs are consistently fruit forward, juicy, ripe and luscious, offering tremendous value for the price and Napa Valley name recognition.

Meaning "good year," BonAnno, the Italian saying heralds the celebration of the New Year, and is a fortuitous play on Vintner Matthew Bonnano's last name. With their first release in 2004, BonAnno Cabs are consistently fruit forward, juicy, ripe and luscious, offering tremendous value for the price and Napa Valley name recognition. BonAnno wines should have a place on your table every night not just on New Year's. Salute! The 2006 vintage saw a return to normal crop loads throughout the valley after a bumper crop in 2005. Smaller berries, resulting in less juice, combined with a beautiful growing season, we realized wines of great depth, structure and complexity to go along with the dark and red fruit characteristics for which BonAnno wines are recognized. Our wines have the good fortune to be crushed, crafted, blended and aged at one of the Stags Leap District's-and Napa Valley's-top Cab houses, Steltzner Vineyards by Winemaker Tim Dolven. Tim has made wines in Napa Valley for over fifteen years. Prior to joining Steltzner Vineyards, Tim was winemaker for Bouchaine Vineyards and has previously worked for Honig Cellars, and Havens Wine Cellars. We have worked with Tim to create well balanced, fruit intense and food friendly wines. We present BonAnno wines with great pride. Our hope is that they become part of your everyday wine enjoyment and play a special role in your upcoming holiday season with family and friends. Read less
