This is the high end Cabernet from Calla Lily. It is a step up from the regular bottling. It retails for around $120. Purple in color. The nose has cassis, toast, spice and vanilla. On the palate, the oak is strong on this one. There is also firm tannins. Plenty of cassis fruit but the question is whether the fruit will out last the tannins and the oak. It is a tight ball right bow, but a quite delicious tight ball. It will be interesting to see where this goes from here.
2013 Calla Lily Estate Ultimate Red Cabernet Sauvignon, USA, California, Napa, Pope Valley, Wine Review
This is a reasonably priced Cabernet from the Pope Valley, one of the less heralded places in the Napa Valley. It is a very solid and enjoyable Cabernet. Purple in color. The nose has cassis, sandalwood and slight black cherries. On the palate, this is easy drinking. Some depth. Light tannins. Nice black cherry and cassis fruit. Good finish. A nice wine for a dinner party. It sells for around $65 at the winery, but can often be found for a bit less in stores.
