Waterstone Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This continues to be one the best under-$25 Cabs on the market. There is impeccable balance here between ripe, plush opulence and muscular underlying structure. This is another legend-in-the-making wine at this price. Aromas of cedary oak, currants, black cherries and ripe plums are rich and concentrated on the palate. The firm tannins underlying the wine's core provide balance, leading to a long, lingering finish. 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc. Aged 22 months in French oak (80% new).

Three vineyards, four Zinfandels and one shared passion for the pursuit of small lot, single-vineyard wines are the driving force behind one of California's newest wineries, Z-52 . Seasoned winemaker Philip Zorn and veteran wine executive Brent Shortridge wear all the hats at Z-52, and their dedication to distinctive Zinfandels is evident at every turn. The heart and soul of this boutique winery, named for the shared “Z” in both Zinfandel and Zorn, (the 52 references the 52 weeks in a vintage year, 52 rows in Agnes' Vineyard, and 52 cards in a full deck) is its commitment to producing high-end Zinfandels from some of the oldest vineyards in the Lodi and Amador County regions. Z-52 ‘s minimalist approach to winemaking embraces the notion that terroir and its influence on grape character is essential to producing outstanding Zinfandel. Read less
