John Anthony Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 John Anthony Cabernet Sauvignon NapaA wonderfully balanced wine... starts with a pleasant nose of blackberries, red stone fruits and allspice. On the palate, the wine is soft and sensuous, in a Napa Valley style which is lush, ripe, concentrated and "jammy". Hints of anise and moderate tannins lead to an extended, complex finish. Extremely Limited Production - 3rd release. $54.95/btl....Featured in a Wine Spectator article as one of the up and coming wineries to keep an eye on, John Anthony wines have already garnished high scores from numerous wine publications. His efforts have created wines of exceptional quality and character - hand-crafted, artisan style wines.....the '04 vintage"Pure, rich, ripe currant and black cherry fruit shines, with a fleshy texture and hints of spice and cedar. The tannins are moderate, giving this a long, complex, lingering finish." 92ptsJL....the '03 vintage (premiere release)"Riveting aromas of kirsch, black cherry and blackberry fruit are elegant, supple and gracefully balanced, finishing with a lively burst of ripe fruit and supple tannins." 92ptsWS This is a California Wine

In 1997 John Anthony Truchard began leasing and managing vineyard property with the idea of one day producing a small quantity of high end wines to share with friends and family. The idea was simple – pick ideal climate and locations for the fruit, choose the best vine stock available, care and tend to each vines needs, work with the best winemaker you can find, and share the end result with those who will most appreciate it. Fortunately his wife Michele shared his passion and together in 2003 they crushed what would become their first vintage of Cabernet and Syrah. The fruit that goes into the wines are sourced only from vineyards leased or managed by John Anthony Truchard. This level of viticultural control is the foundation for the wines produced. Read less
