When much of Napa sees the summer fog, our Allomi Vineyard is often on the flip side, enjoying a bit of heat, which is just the thing for Cabernet Sauvignon. Pope Valley is less well known than some notable Napa locations but the combination of steady heat and well-drained clay loam soils allows fruit to ripen evenly, gaining welcomed complexity and layers of flavors. Full bodied, with classic Cabernet red fruit flavors set off by aromas and flavors of currant and blackberry, our Allomi Cabernet is noted for moderate, well-integrated tannins showing a round, plush mouthfeel. Distinct notes of vanilla and oak spice from aging in American oak add to the personality of the wine, surely one of our most popular Napa offerings.

James SucklingBlackberry, blueberry and floral undertones follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. A little disjointed now. Needs to come together. Drink in 2019.

Whisky AdvocateBlended of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon with dollops of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Allomi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers up notions of crème de cassis, mocha and cigar boxes with touches of tilled soil and charcoal plus a hint of menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals some spicy nuances accenting the rich, generous fruit, framed by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on a minted blackcurrant note.

Wine & SpiritsDark and rooty at first, this shifts toward more delicate notes of cherries and deeper blueberry flavors as it opens with air. It still carries some vegetal tones in the tannins, like the skin of roasted eggplant. Pour it with lamb kebabs and ratatouille.
