Textbook Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 - 750ml
“TEXTBOOK is a serious winery that consumers should be keeping an eye on. There are real treasures in this portfolio.”
– Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
A diverse array of superb sites in Napa Valley deliver structure, balance and purity.
Restrained viticultural and winemaking practices lead to varietal purity and a
balanced flavor footprint.
Classic Bordelaise winemaking (handwork in vineyard, hand-picking and handsorting, new French oak barrels, egg-white fining, unfiltered) provides an impeccably balanced result.
"Harvest began in late September and was wrapped up on October 6. Clusters were field-sorted and then hand-picked, and then at the winery hand-sorted (berry-by-berry) at an average of 24.5 Brix. Cold soaking for 2 days in open-top temperature-controlled fermenters developed color and flavor (in the absence of alcohol). Fermentation began spontaneously with prevailing, local yeasts and one daily punchdown kept the cap immersed in must, extracting superb flavor and structure. After inoculation with cultured yeasts and twenty-six days on their skins the must was gently pressed into French oak barriques at 5 brix where it completed fermentation. Barrels were 100% French, 30% new, three-year air-dried, medium-plus toast and hand-bent by Cadus and Francois Freres in central France. Sixteen months barrel maturation with only one racking and one organic egg white fining integrated flavors and developed its wonderfully smooth mouth-feel. We believe it is a “textbook” example of this noble variety grown in this outstanding appellation and that it can be enjoyed for several years to come."

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. 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.
