About the Winery: Born from the idea of marrying great farmers with exceptional winemaking, Récoltant is a pure expression of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from one of the world’s most revered vinous landscapes. The result is a wine rooted in transparency, authenticity and a true sense of place. In French, Récoltant is defined as one who grows and produces their own fruit. We use longstanding relationships to source fruit from some of Napa Valley’s best farmers and vineyards with the goal of producing a wine that represents our love and admiration for the appellation we call home that pens its own evolving story with every vintage.
Winemaker's Tasting Notes: The dark brooding aromatics from this wine come from one of the best vintages mother nature has given Napa Valley this decade. A beautiful blend of dense lilac and violets with dark raspberry and fresh cassis on the nose. Followed by balance with ripe and fresh black and red fruits with gentle acidity and generous tannins. The wine finishes with finesse and polish.
"The 2019 Recoltant Cabernet Sauvignon is fragrant, firm, and well-balanced. This wine displays aromas and flavors of blackberries, sandalwood, and oaky notes. Pair it with a savory lamb stew."- Wilfred Wong.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon.
