Gallica, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, CA, 2009
£35 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price £250.00
To start 2019, we have chosen one of Napa most boutique and most exciting estate.
Gallica started in 2007 and are only producing four wines.
The Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are grown between 800 and 1400 feet high in the Oakville district, just north of the city of Napa.
Mountain fruits have more concentration and are generally broader than valley floor fruits.
The Oakville AVA also produces Cabernet Sauvignon with a great minerality because of its “dirt”. The wines tend to have a concentrated texture and aromas of dry herbs.
This wine is expressive on the nose with powerful notes of cooked cassis, blackberry and blueberry.
The palate is rich and flavourful with aromas of sweet oak and chocolate. The rocky minerality bring almost a savoury character to the wine and gives it some freshness.
The concentration and power of this Cabernet matches greatly with our Venison loin.
