Volunteer Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

BNA Wine Group

Winemaker Tony Leonardini is a former volunteer
firefighter in Napa Valley. Ask, and he will share stories about traveling the state to put out fires. Volunteer wine salutes that spirit of giving.

 

WINEMAKING:The year started off with record rainfall leading to early, robust growth on the vines. Then summer started off average but quickly changed to one of the hottest summers on record! The vines and grapes were tested, but with modern farming techniques, the vines were aided and protected. In the end, due to ample water and sunlight, 2017 will produce another excellent vintage.

 

TASTING NOTES:The 2017 Volunteer Cabernet is another vintage with structure and balance which will carry the wine for years. From its dark ruby color to its rich, full-bodied flavor, the 2017 Volunteer will not disappoint you. In 2017 we blended the volunteer with a touch of Merlot to round out the palate and increase the aromatics.

FOOD PAIRING:Enjoy the Volunteer with a hearty meal like wild game or lamb ragù gnocchi.
