Newton Vineyard 'Unfiltered' Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

"A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec and 2% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Unfiltered has a yeasty/Marmite nose with rare beef over a core of crushed red currants and blackberries with mulberries, lavender and wild thyme. With red berries in the mouth, the medium-bodied palate is elegant and finely crafted with firm, grainy tannins, and there's an herbal lift to the finish."- _Wine Advocate_ *(92 points)*

Each Newton Vineyard wine embodies the founders’ vision to rise above the conventions of the valley in pursuit of unmatched quality. Crafted with an uncompromising commitment to true terroir expression, the Newton style is noted for its unadulterated richness and purity of fruit. The single square mile of hillside pioneered by the Newtons in 1977 is an impressive site, with expansive vistas of Napa Valley and beyond. The terraced mountain estate has 120 acres planted at elevations ranging from 500 to 1,600 feet above sea level. Each of the 112 distinctive vineyard blocks is planted to a specific varietal – Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon or Petit Verdot. These parcels reflect distinct soil types, sun exposures and individual microclimates. The blocks are fermented separately to contribute complexity to the final blended wine. As with the red varietals, the diverse Chardonnay blocks are hand-picked and vinified separately, providing the winemaker with a rich palette from which to choose when blending Newton Vineyard wines. The blocks are set among the native vegetation to preserve the ecosystem of the hillside. Recognized as an American pioneer of unfiltered wines, Newton Vineyard is dedicated to working in harmony with nature to transform grapes of uncompromised quality into wines of distinctive character. Based on an old-world style, Newton’s winemaking techniques include natural fermentation and bottling without filtration. These purist traditions preserve the natural depth of flavor, bouquet and structure. Read less

Widely acclaimed as a California wine trailblazer, Newton Vineyard was one of the first wineries on Spring Mountain, a rugged yet serene appellation located west of St. Helena on the eastern flank of the Mayacamas range.

The 2008 Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon opens with notes of black fruits, cassis and black currants. The fruit forward aromas are pronounced in the youth of this wine which promises elegance as complex herbal layers of juniper and bramble characteristic of Spring Mountain follow on the nose.
