Newton Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Medium ruby-red. Fruit-driven aromas of cassis, black cherry and licorice. Tighter and more medicinal than the Claret; less sweet and generous today, with a strong mineral component dominating. This youthfully imploded wine finishes with chewy, building tannins. This is from Newton's basic range but still should benefit from three or four years of cellaring. Like the Claret, an excellent value.

Each Newton Vineyard wine embodies the founders’ vision to rise above the conventions of the valley in pursuit of unmatched quality. Crafted with an uncompromising commitment to true terroir expression, the Newton style is noted for its unadulterated richness and purity of fruit. The single square mile of hillside pioneered by the Newtons in 1977 is an impressive site, with expansive vistas of Napa Valley and beyond. The terraced mountain estate has 120 acres planted at elevations ranging from 500 to 1,600 feet above sea level. Each of the 112 distinctive vineyard blocks is planted to a specific varietal – Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon or Petit Verdot. These parcels reflect distinct soil types, sun exposures and individual microclimates. The blocks are fermented separately to contribute complexity to the final blended wine. As with the red varietals, the diverse Chardonnay blocks are hand-picked and vinified separately, providing the winemaker with a rich palette from which to choose when blending Newton Vineyard wines. The blocks are set among the native vegetation to preserve the ecosystem of the hillside. Recognized as an American pioneer of unfiltered wines, Newton Vineyard is dedicated to working in harmony with nature to transform grapes of uncompromised quality into wines of distinctive character. Based on an old-world style, Newton’s winemaking techniques include natural fermentation and bottling without filtration. These purist traditions preserve the natural depth of flavor, bouquet and structure. Read less

Refined and beautiful. made with a splash of Cabernet Franc that gives it a cherry pie filling richness, it's dry and full-bodied, with thick but sweetly ripe tannins framing a Sauvignonesque core of cassis. Finishes with a wonderful, grounding tug of herbs and coffee. A major achievement at this price.

Marked by a complex mix of cedar, cigar box, dried currant, sage and tobacco flavors, this medium- to full-bodied red is tannic, yet presents a very nice balanced effort at this price. Drink now through 2017.

Polished to a clean, tight package, this cabernetandrsquo;s dark fruit and green herb character will sweeten roast beef or lamb.
