2013 Revana Family Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
UNITED STATES / CALIFORNIA / NAPA
Wine Spectator | Rating: 94Elegantly styled, rich and creamy, with a pure mix of dark berry, licorice, cedary oak, mocha and dried herb. A mix of grace, finesse and density, ending with a dash of espresso. Drink now through 2025. 1,500 cases made.Author: James Laube
JamesSuckling.com | Rating: 94Lots of blackberry and blueberry character. Some tar, too. Full-bodied, dense and fruit-forward center palate that's wrapped up in a polished tannin package. Well done. Better in 2019.Author: James Suckling
Dr. Madaiah Revana is a successful Cardiologist in Houston whose desire to have a vineyard in Napa Valley was shaped by a visit in 1997. Once he decided on the place, he dove in and hired the best winemaking and vineyard management team available. Vineyard Manager Jim Barbour has his boot-prints all over the Valley and his name alone instantly commands notice for a new property. Paired with one of the most respected winemakers in the world, Heidi Peterson Barrett, big things were naturally expected. Barbour developed the site into an eight-block mix of four different classic Bordeaux varieties with the exception of Merlot. Peterson Barrett's resume was already brimming with successes elsewhere, including Paradigm, Dalla Valle, Jones Family, Screaming Eagle, Grace Family, Amuse Bouche, Showket and her own La Sirena.
