2017 SEBRIGHT GREENWOOD BLOCK NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$70.00

Some of the best wines are so magnetic that there’s a romance that builds with each subsequent release. That can become intensified on the rarest wines, because of their limited availability, which makes you eagerly await the next, and the next, and the next. Sebright is that wine in a nutshell, and virtually everyone experiencing any of their previous vintages, has been asking for more…

With a mere 100 cases produced, chances are you haven’t heard of Sebright Cellars, but I can guarantee once you taste it, you won’t soon forget it. Sebright produced the 2017 Greenwood Block Cabernet from a small vineyard located South of Chateau Montelena Winery and across from Vincent Arroyo in Calistoga.

As much as I enjoy tasting $100 Cabernets from classic producers, there’s an element of excitement that comes from getting that same feeling of superior quality from a lesser-known producer at Special Price. Enter the Sebright Greenwood Block Cabernet 2017… If you’re looking for a wine that none of your friends have heard of but will rock them to their core when they try it, this is it.

2017 SEBRIGHT GREENWOOD BLOCK NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Master Sommelier Tasting Notes, “Sebright Winemaker Tom Eddy did a masterful job making this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. After 30 months in oak, it has developed a complex nose of mixed berry cobbler, ripe cherries, crushed minerals, and vanilla spice. The palate is deep and concentrated with flavors of mountain blackberries, black cherry, sage, mint, bittersweet chocolate, and subtle baking spices. It’s a beautiful wine to drink now, but will cellar past 2032.” KEVIN M. VOGT 95 POINTS

Veteran Calistoga winemaker Tom Eddy makes the wine, and this exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon perfectly reflects his vast experience. The 2017 vintage precisely balances red and blue fruits, with intriguing minerality and firm, perfectly integrated tannins. We bought every bottle that we could, again, and it’s most certainly not going to be enough.
