92 points Wine Advocate

"Very deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pleinair Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers pronounced baked berries, prunes and warm black currant cordial notes with touches of baking spices, olives and dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it has concentrated baked black berry and savory layers with soft, velvety tannins and balanced freshness, finishing on a spicy note."

 

Pleinair presents our interpretation of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The namerefers to the French painters' method of painting outdoors (en plein air), which developed around the same time as Napa's first European-style vineyards in the 1800s. Fruit from vineyards with diverse soil types brings complexity and depth to the finished wine, which shows rich black fruit, spice and floral notes with a firm tannin structure and balanced acidity.

The 2015 Galerie Napa Valley 
Pleinair

from Napa. Deep purple, it opens with aromas of cassis, currants and wild berries and follows 
with tobacco, graphite, bay leaf and licorice, finishing with layers of flavors and a well-balanced, 
long mouthfeel with elegant tannins.

Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
