Revana Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Ithaca Vineyard, Rutherford, Napa Valley, California

Revana is dedicated to exploring the potential of Cabernet Sauvignon through expressing the terroir of our own estate property in the St. Helena AVA as well as fruit sourced from some of the greatest vineyards in nested-AVAs of Napa Valley in Rutherford, Stag’s Leap District, and Howell Mountain. “Under the guidance of Thomas Rivers Brown as Winemaker, our primary focus is elevating the potential of Cabernet Sauvignon in the Napa Valley. Thomas Rivers Brown’s non-interventionalist winemaking style allows the wines to truly showcase each single vineyard, including the Revana Estate Vineyard.” Over the course of almost two centuries Rutherford has been the source of some of Napa’s most coveted Cabernet Sauvignon wines. Rutherford’s prime location at the widest point of the Napa Valley offers extended sunlight, combined with its diverse mixture of deep loamy soils creates a longer growing season that result in softer tannins and saturated fruit flavors. The Ithaca Vineyard, which was planted in 2009, is the source for this Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes harvested from these young vines embody the unique characteristics that have come to define the Rutherford region, with steeped red and dark fruit flavors framed by fine dusty tannins.
