Kuleto Estate:

In 1992, culinary entrepreneur Pat Kuleto assembled five parcels from cattle ranchers to create a 761-acre ranch of wild hillside land on the eastern edge of the Napa Valley.

For Pat, the building of his rustically elegant Tuscan-style home, Villa Cucina, and the planting of the surrounding Kuleto Estate vineyards represented the next step in the evolution of a life committed to gracious living and excellence.

Fine French oak nose, perfumed, lots of floral hints, with a bit of herb/licorice – lovely entry, transparent, nice ripe tannins, juicy acids, huge fruit follow through on the back end, licorice, deep herbal, mineral, really ripe fruit sweetness but not that much weight, great persistence, tight roll of tobacco leaf on the back end, bit of spice, nice thick layers of flavors on the long finish. This really shows exceptional balance. 92pts
