Product Description

"Napa Angel Aurelio´s Selection is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa regions of Oak Knoll and Yountville. The soil in these areas is predominantly gravel with a proportion of alluvial loam that helps to achieve harmonious and balanced wines. The climate during the 2006 vintage – moderately warm with cold nights – helped the development of ripe fruit flavors and deep color. Aurelio regularly visited the estates controlling and checking the full phenolic ripeness of the grapes. Yields were 2.5 tons per acre, hence the full-bodied character of the wine. The grapes were carefully selected and hand-picked.
After harvesting, the grapes were cold macerated for 10 days and then fermented for another 10 days. The wine went through a process of post fermentation skin contact. 80% of the wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. Total production: 4,048 cases (6 x 750ml)." - Winery Notes

Napa Angel "Aurelio's Selection" Cabernet 2007 Tasting Notes

Full-bodied wine with firm, soft tannins. Deep and intense garnet red. Rich and harmonious with an integrated, mature and mellow fruit character that makes this wine elegant and silky and opulent at the same time. In the mouth-feel it has a lingering character given by the Oak Knoll and Yountville gravely terroirs. Generous fruit expression with hints of blackberries, plums and layers of black cherries. Velvety in the mid palate, with nuances of perfectly integrated French oak. Nice long finish. A wine to be aged for at least 15 years or to be enjoyed now.
