Newton Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Unfiltered 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Exhibiting exceptional balance, this wine opens with aromas of chocolate covered coffee bean and a touch of cassis balanced by vanilla, pepper and mineral. The mouthfeel is sensuous, round and supple, with ripe tannins draped in velvet. Sumptuous to drink now, this wine will mature gracefully with time in the cellar. Distinctive meat dishes with earthy or nutty flavor components are a perfect accompaniment to the luscious flavors in this wine. Try it with grilled lamb and a porcini sauce, beef tenderloin with winter vegetables and a red wine reduction sauce, or a New York steak with gorgonzola walnut butter. For cheese pairings, try Camembert, aged Jack or Parmesan cheese.

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
