Saunter [Red Head Vineyard] Cabernet (2017)
Only 75 Cases produced!!!
Saunter is a collaboration between a star Napa winemaker and the head of one of Napa’s leading vineyard management companies. Josh Clark of Clark Vineyard Management and his wife Heather Clark have teamed up with celebrated winemaker Thomas Brown to create very limited production wines from choice Napa Valley vineyards.
The label was named as a nod to the philosophy of Henry David Thoreau, who noted that “it is a great art to saunter.” Saunter wines have won acclaim in their first few years of production. Robert Parker Jr. called Saunter “stunning…spectacular...a beauty of symmetry, intensity and remarkable fruit quality.”
This wine is every bit the powerhouse that you’ve come to love. Gorgeous, inky-black color and aromas of réglisse, dark chocolate and floral notes are the first impressions.
With smooth and powerful musculature, this opulent, full-bodied wine exhibits rich mulberry, espresso, and cigar box notes with a hint of minerality.
Finishing with good acidity, prodigious yet smooth tannins, and a long, concentrated mouthfeel; this wine will drink well for 20+ years.
