2012 Revana Family Vineyard
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Regularly $149.99 | Sale Price $139.99
6-bottle case $124.99 per bottle

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate emerges from the best four blocks on the property, where the soil is a bit rockier. The combination of Clone 7 Cabernet & the location, on the northern side of St. Helena across the street from Vineyard 29, yields a rich, sumptuous Cabernet built on pure texture and volume. Blue and black fruit, smoke, spices & menthol meld into its creamy, layered finish. This is a very strong showing from Revana & winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown.” – Antonio Galloni rated 94pts

“A classy effort, rich, rfined, pure and elegant, offering tiers of blackberry, wild berry, floral and spice aromas, supported by spicy, cedary oak and fine-grained tannins. Ends with a burst of mocha and black licorice. Drink now through 2028.” – Wine Spectator rated 94 pts

Regularly $13.99
Sale Price $10.99
* Purchase 6-bottle case and receive 10% discount! *
(Net: $9.89/bottle)
In Piedmontese dialect, the term Maraia is synonymous with little rascals. Liveliness, exuberance, and sometimes a bit mischievous, this is a fitting name for this young, fresh, fragrant wine. The grapes used in producing Barbera del Monferrato come exclusively from best vineyards located in the community of Maranzana in Asti province. The grapes are hand-picked, destalked and softly pressed.

The color is a lively and brilliant dark ruby-red. The perfume is fresh and intense with clean scents of wild berries, currants and sour black cherry. A light hint of vanilla and toasted oak. The flavor is warm and robust, full-bodied, pleasant and balanced; its sensory attributes make it an outstanding accompaniment for imposing first courses and main-course meats, boiled or roasted.
