This is one of my favorite wines. Huge extracted Napa mountain cab.


Winemaker's Notes:

sure and a long growing season. Fantesca’s 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon The grapes for this wine were harvested from Fantesca Estate on Spring Mountain in 2002. Fantesca’s vineyard is located on the southeastern side of Spring Mountain, with tremendous variations in slope over just 8.6 acres of vines. The elevation and mountain terrain offer superb sun exposure. The unique terroir here produces a rich and intense Cabernet, true to the character of the Spring Mountain District. “The 2002 Fantesca Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has an intense deep purple hue. The dark wine clings to the glass and makes a perfect red curtain that foretells itself as "I'm Bold”. The entry, mid-palate, and great, long finish each in their own make an exaggerated statement. Ripe black cherry predominates the mouthful of fruit. The tannins are indeed firm but well textured. The ample acidity fulfills the balance and structure. All combined, the layers of flavor hurdle into an extremely long finish. This wine will perhaps show best in 3 to 4 years and should survive 15 to 20 years.” –Kirk Venge
