A dark and voluptuous single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from the rugged hillsides of Pritchard Hill on the eastern ridges of the Napa Valley. Lush notes of blue and black fruits are balanced by supple leather and earth undertones and a hint of minerality, with elegant tannins and a lingering finish.
• Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media (95 Points)
"A dark, voluptuous wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Melanson Vineyard impresses for its texture, depth and overall balance. Dark red stone fruits, spices, new leather and menthol meld together in a seamless wine. There is plenty of supporting structure, but the tannins are nearly buried, as the fruit is so radiant and expressive. This is a gorgeous wine from Castello di Amorosa."
• Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (94 Points) -
"The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Melanson Vineyard is filled with blueberry and raspberry characteristics as well as exceptional purity, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, good acidity and freshness, a vigorous exuberance and an ethereal style. This fascinating 2013 should drink well for 15+ years."
