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.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine delivers a robustly rich experience of lengthy appeal. Blended with 12% Petite Sirah, among other varieties, and aged in American oak, the palate shows a wealth of black cherry, cassis and blackberry around toasted oak and a hint of clove.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Allomi, coming from Pope Valley, was aged for 18 months in some old American oak, but all the new oak (25%) was French. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it features fresh, crunchy black fruit notes of black currants, blackberries and fresh plums with touches of menthol, spice box and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling black fruit and a lovely velvety texture with a lively burst of freshness coming through on the spice-laced finish. 80,000 cases were made.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, October 2019
