Cresta Velia Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Cresta Velia Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

#CRE12CS3 | 750mL

When I drove up Howell Mountain to Outpost Winery in January, I was given a bottle of wine to try called Cresta Velia. As I learned, Cresta Velia is the project that John Giannini, assistant winemaker to Thomas Brown, began with the 2009 vintage. This 100% Cab comes from Outpost's neighboring vineyard, Eagle Summit. Full notes of lush, black fruit with supple tannins frame the palate. If you tasted this blind like I did, you would think this Cab was far more expensive than its price and I love when that happens. 130 cases were produced. - Kerrin Laz, Wine Director / February 2014
