B. Wise is a wine project founded by proprietor Brion Wise that brings together the best that Sonoma and Napa vineyards have to offer. As part of that, they sought winemaking expertise that would allow them to take the best advantage of extraordinary vineyard sites. In 2002 they began working with Massimo Monticelli, who came from Silver Oak, as the winemaker for the B. Wise Estate. Mark Herold brings depth to their Napa Cabernet portfolio from his pioneering oenology work for Joseph Phelps and his own successful Merus Cabernet.
2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Cabernet Sauvignon | 500 cases produced | 20 months on 80% New French Oak
Vineyard: Coombsville, Yountville and Oakville.
Winemaker(s): Massimo Monticello (Silver Oak) and Mark Herold (Joseph Phelps and Merus)
Tasting notes: From distinguished vineyards in the Coombsville, Yountville, and Oakville districts. The opaque black-red hue reveals the concentration and depth of the wine. Dark fruits of blackberry and cassis with notes of spice, bay leaf, and dark chocolate emanate from the glass. The fruits are further enveloped by toasty oak tones with layers of violet, clove, and vanilla. In the mouth, layers of refined tannin give broad texture and extended length to the wine. The wine finishes with great energy and mineral tones. Drink 2021-2031.
