Slingshot North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon

Description

A brilliant example of the power and finesse that typify the best Cali Cab, at an amazing price. Classic cassis aromas; plenty of structure and body; black fruit flavours; subtle, integrated oak. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Petit Sirah.

Extra Notes

The Stewart family, owners of the 300 acre Juliana Vineyards in Napa Valley, traditionally a source of excellent fruit for winemakers who had neither the time nor the financial wherewithal to become grape growers on this hallowed stretch of Californian dust. Having assembled a winemaking team and established a modern winery, the Stewart family have met with enormous critical success for the wines now produced under the family label. Of all their projects though, the one that appealed most to us was their second label, Slingshot, which represents the best value for money that we have tasted in Napa.
