2017 CATERWAUL Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Caterwaul is a new collaboration between superstar winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown and Matt Hardin from Barbour Vineyard Management.  Started in 2014, they produce a Cabernet from Matt’s estate vineyard in Pope Valley and a Regusci Vineyard release from Stags Leap District.

Brown is the winemaker for some of Napa’s and Sonoma’s most iconic labels – Schrader, Outpost and his own Rivers-Marie – and has more than 20 100-point wines to his resume.  Hardin is a 6th generation Napan and partner in one of the most renowned vineyard management companies, bar none.

All from Pope Valley, the 2017 is a fabulous wine in its peer group.  Rich, boisterous and flamboyantly ripe, the 2017 offers tons of immediacy.  Super-ripe dark cherry and red plum fruit are pushed forward in this opulent, inviting Napa Cab.  Chocolate, new leather and spice punctuate the finish.  It’s a rocking mouthful!  Reg. $50, call for exclusive pricing.
