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

I've had this stashed away for nearly a year, after reading a recommendation for it on a wine site (possibly this one :-) I was saving it for a special occasion, but when I ran out of my "everyday" wine (Mas de Gourgonnier red), I decided to break into this bottle. I'm now on the second glass, and the initial blast of cherry and coconut is still prominent, but now when I take a whiff, I also immediately think "tobacco" and "leather." It's quite dry, and a little more astringent than I'd like, but overall I'm really liking the taste of this one.

New York Times Number Two pick for 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - WE 93pts. - Winemaker Notes - Exhibiting exceptional balance, this deeply concentrated wine opens with spicy cinnamon aromas accenting bright fruit, fresh plum and cedar tones. Black cherry, mocha and a touch of white chocolate all are evident on the palate with a savory bramble character lingering on the finish. Decant this wine to allow the subtle and complex flavors to fully express themselves, or allow it to mature gracefully in the cellar. Drink now through 2020.

Newton Vineyards is one of the first wineries to be established in the Spring Mountain region of Napa Valley. Over three decades they have produced consistently fine wines building a strong reputation for quality as well as value. A pioneering of unfiltered wines in Califirnia, their Unfiltered Cabernet is always a full-bodied and distinctive wine. This 2007 scored 93 points in Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "A Beautiful Cabernet, dry, smoothly tannic and impressive for its volume of flavor. Shows a complex range of blackberries, black currants, minerals and oak, with a long spicy finish. Elegant and powerful at the same time, it should develop in the bottle over the next decade." Grab it now while it's ON SALE!!!

Winemaker Notes - Newton Vineyard’s newest addition, Red Label Cabernet Sauvignon, bridges outstanding value and craftsmanship - offering an artisanal wine as an everyday luxury. Sourced from Newton’s estate vineyards and other premier Napa vineyards, this wine is made in the classic Newton style showcasing the purity of fruit. Vibrant, rich and approachable, this wine’s plum aromas are accented by intriguing white chocolate, vanilla and anise character. Deep blackberry and supple leather flavors are supported by smooth tannins.



<p>From Napa Valley, this dry bold red is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Cabernet Franc grapes. It has the richness of a cherry pie due in part to its sweetly ripen tannins</p>
