Our Allomi Vineyard enjoys a bit of heat, which is just the thing for Cabernet Sauvignon. While Pope Valley is less well known than some other Napa AVAs, the combination of steady heat and well-drained clay loam soils allows fruit to ripen evenly, gaining welcomed complexity and layers of flavor. We consistently see beautiful yields from the Allomi Vineyard, and 2016 was no different. On the nose, this wine delivers intriguing vegetal aromas with hints of mushroom and forest floor. On the palate, Allomi Cabernet is known to deliver moderate, well-integrated tannins and a round, plush mouthfeel making it one of our most popular Napa offerings. A wonderful brightness of raspberry and red plum delight the mid-palate, and these flavors are supported by a subtle oak spice that adds to the personality of the wine.

Wine EnthusiastThis blend is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller amounts of Petite Sirah, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Bold black fruit expand on the palate, with a lengthy powder keg of tobacco, gun smoke and cigar box shining through. The tannins are persistent yet soft.

Wine SpectatorA solid, juicy style, with bramble accents and earthy grip carrying dark currant and bitter plum fruit flavors along. Fresh savory notes add more energy to the finish. The fruit is unencumbered by toast. Drink now through 2025. 63,289 cases made.

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it offers notes of crushed red and black currants, black raspberries, mulberries and tilled soil with wafts of bay leaves and unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, it has loads of vibrant red and black fruit flavors with a soft texture and earthy finish. 63,289 cases produced.
