Special notes

Napa Valley is the most famous American vineyard. This is not due to quantity because, Napa Valley produces only 4% of all California wines. The grapes benefit from optimal conditions. The vines are grown in a small Napa River valley with diverse volcanic soil. The hills that surround this valley reach up to 800 meters, offering excellent viticulture conditions. Testing with other grape varietals like sangiovese, have produced equally successful results.

    OK - Mein spanischer Tempranillo im Keller scheint mir mindestens so kräftig, dabei noch ausgewogener bei gleichzeitig günstigerem Preis (ca15.--/ Flasche). Aus lukullischer, oeconomischer und oekologischer Sicht ist für mich der Fall klar.

    Echter Napa-Geschmack für wenig Geld - Dieser Wein trumpft mit der unvergleichlichen, intensive Cassisnote und den mürben, noblen Tanninen von Napa-Cabernet und bietet so ein ausgezeichnetes Preis-Genuss Verhältnis.
