2017 Janzen Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon


Our latest vintage of Janzen Napa Valley Cabernet unites the unique mountain character of our estate fruit with the finesse offered by Cabernet from Rutherford and Oakville. 2017 was a very small harvest, yet the resulting fruit was very concentrated and dynamic. We picked on the earlier side, and we expect 2017 to develop as a more classic and balanced vintage. The tannins, acidity and fruit all play their parts without any one of them dominating the show.

Praise for our previous vintage, 2016 Janzen Cab:

Wine Enthusiast, April 2019
Rating: 90
Sanguine in style, this is earthy and tart in red currant, blueberry and a richness of graham cracker, the minerality a mix of iron and earth. The tannins are substantial yet pillowy, making the palate soft and rich.
