Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011 750ml

Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

2010 was a challenging vintage in Napa Valley. An early start to the growing season was followed by a very cool summer. Temperatures remained cool which led to steady but delayed flavor development. To compensate forthe cool year, leaf pulling was implemented across the fruit zone to increase sunlight to the berries. A week of high temperatures and dry winds scorched many vineyards across Napa valley leaving exposed fruit sun burnt. Several weeks of warm temperatures in September and October brought ideal ripening temperatures. Despite the tough year,fruit in the vineyards showed good flavors and balanced acidity all with lower sugars

This is not the highly rated Terra Valentine Spring Mountain Cabernet. Further, the wine shipped was the 2011, not the advertised 2010. That said, this is a better wine than would be expected for a bottle costing less than $25.
