The old world and new world collide to produce this exceptional wine. The fruit sourced for the inaugural bottling of the Uncle George Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a small one-acre Stag’s Leap Hillside Vineyard, farmed and manicured by Giovanni Olivieri whose family were early Italian immigrants to the Napa Valley.
Garnet red in color, a bevy of aromas are easily accessible. One thinks of dried black cherry, deep red rose petal, crushed clove and dried cocoa powder. Following a lovely sweet, soft entry, flavors on the palate suggest a very solid core of black currant, ripe red pie cherry and red licorice, with just a touch of caramel and anise. The ripe tannins, which are very, very finely-textured, give the wine a polished, almost creamy feel that is never drying. A lingering finish is highlighted by an echo of the generous fruit core. Cellar for 5 to 10 years. Only 4 barrels produced!
