Tobacco Road Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Vitality 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Mid to deep red with soft purple rim, lifted bright fresh berry fruit showing red currant and blueberry notes. rich mouth filling weight that swamps the palate with ripe, juicy flavor that runs through to a long and fine tannin finish. Moorish and incredibly drinkable whilst young but with very fine, classy tannin weight on the end of the palate that will benefit aging for those patient enough.

Tobacco Road Cellars:
Take some interesting characters, mix in some humorous antics, deliver a terrific finish and you wind up with a great story. The Tobacco Road Cellars Story is no different.

Take some interesting characters, mix in some humorous antics, deliver a terrific finish and you wind up with a great story. The Tobacco Road Cellars Story is no different. In fact, it has almost as much flavor as our wine and we’d like to share them both with you. We are two North Carolina-based entrepreneurs who just happen to have a penchant for California Grapes. Four years ago, we went to Napa Valley on a whim to create our own wine to give as holiday gifts. We bottled 25 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon, packaged them in wax, tissue, and wooden crates and hand-delivered nearly half of our production to friends and family. After drinking the rest by ourselves (not all at once!), we realized that we had a treasure in our glasses. Following the tradition of excellence known as Tobacco Road in North Carolina, we decided to create a boutique winery committed to producing world-class Cabernet, Pinot Noir and Syrah. From the succulent grapes that we hand pick, to the high-end French oak barrels we use for aging to the delicate hand-dipped wax seal, we pay attention to every single detail and demand the highest quality at every level. Today, we have nearly a half-dozen bottlings under our belt, a harem of loyal collectors and wine enthusiasts vying for a bottle of our limited production and the endorsement of Gary Vaynerchuk, the nation’s best- known wine aficionado. It’s a twist we didn’t quite expect, but we’re definitely not complaining. Just what is it about our wine that makes it so appealing? You’ll have to taste it to see. Read less
