Kuleto "India Ink" Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

From the estate’s rockiest vineyard block, located at altitude and producing small berries comes this powerful wine. On the nose it’s a black hole, filled with dusty minerals, charcoal, scorched earth, and black fruits. On the palate this is dark and richly tannic with toasty piecrust notes from the oak and a sharp edge of minty spice helping to define the ripe yet black mountain fruit and the earthy spice. There are flashes of almost opulent fruit here but the tannic grip is almost unrelenting at this early stage. This is a monster of a wine, in the old school sense of the word, and is both very exciting and very promising. For my palate Napa Valley Cabernet doesn’t get any better 96pts

Marrying the eye of a master designer and the heart of a vintner, Pat perceived the vast potential for a world-class vineyard on the mountainous land overlooking Lake Hennessey, Pritchard Hill and the towns of Rutherford and St. Helena. 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.
