These three elite Cabernets rule our winemaking hierarchy. Most monarchs, both historically and in the modern day, have been brought up in a royal family. Growing up in a royal family, future monarchs are often trained for their expected future responsibilities as monarch. These three wines are no different, as each vintage is expected to be symbolic of The Castle & our winemaking team.
♦ One bottle of 2018 Sinalunga, Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, "Lots of cassis, graphite, lead pencil, and scorched earth notes emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Sinalunga, another powerful, concentrated 2018 from Castello di Amorosa. One of the more structured, tannic wines in the lineup, it has full-bodied richness, a wonderfully pure, layered texture, and terrific balance. Bottles need a good 4-6 years of bottle age, but it should evolve for 30 years or more." - 97 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
♦ One Bottle 2017 Trenta, Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, an artfully crafted Cabernet Sauvignon as impressive and unique as the Castello itself. This powerful blend was aged in new French oak barrels for 30 months, a year longer than any other Castello di Amorosa reserve wine. This extended aging deeply integrates the oak to compliment the intense black fruit profile of the wine, elevating the aroma, flavor, and texture.
♦ One Bottle 2016 Il Barone, Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, s"A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon with small splashes of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Il Barone is deep purple-black in color and has quite an earthy/savory nose to begin, revealing notions of black truffles, char-grilled meats, black olives and cumin seed over a core of crème de cassis and stewed plums. Full-bodied, concentrated, and packed with black fruit and savory layers, it has a rock-solid, grainy frame and just enough freshness to lift the long finish. Drink 2020 – 2037." - 95 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
