Terra Valentine Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Terra Valentine blends the elegance of "place" with the bold subtleties of mountain grown, estate wines. A climb up the switchbacks of Spring Mountain grants not only extraordinary views but a peek into the winery's past—all enjoyed amidst a tranquil, mountainside setting. A step into the winery's castle-like cellar serves up an experience rich with world class wines and storied tales, from the "cowboy days" of winemaking, to the current day operation that blends cutting-edge technology with time-tested Old World techniques. At our fieldstone winery perched at the Spring Mountain district overlooking the Napa Valley, Terra Valentine produces this estate Cabernet Sauvignon with mountain intensity and balance, expressing the character of our vineyards and the passion of our winemaking team.
The nose opens with wild blueberries, tobacco, sweet cedar, and notes of roasted espresso. Candied fruits and black licorice continue on the palate with supple tannins and a long, rich finish.
