Product Description

Napa Valley Cabernets is a celebration of lifestyle, luxury, and, most of all, Cabernet Sauvignon. The first remarkable California Cabernets were those made in the 1880s and 1890s at the Inglenook estate in Rutherford in the heart of the Napa Valley. Since then, Napa Valley has become one of the world’s most celebrated wine regions, an international destination for casual wine fans and aficionados alike, and the region’s Cabernets continue to impress even the staunchest Cab critics.

Here readers will find more than one hundred of Napa Valley’s finest Cabernet Sauvignons, their vintage, unique attributes, and tasting notes, as well as the stories behind the dedicated vintners that strive to produce excellence from this king of red grapes. Included also is stunning photography of the estates and winemakers, as well as breathtaking images of Napa Valley, evoking the beauty and lifestyle of the region, and articulating its unique draw. Taken together, this is among the most comprehensive guides to the Cabernets of Napa Valley, and is an essential guide for connoisseurs of Cabernet and lovers of wine country landscapes and culture.
