Vineyard Neighbor is Opus One
It’s a whole world in a glass, multiple worlds even, originating from pedigreed Napa Valley fruit treated with the utmost care and allowed to develop at a slow and inviting pace. Now it has bloomed to a whole new level of complexity and sophistication.
While Karo-Kann Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015 aromatics show the wisdom of age right off the bat, weaving tobacco and savory herbs together with dried dark cherries and blackcurrant. On the palate, cassis emerges layered with licorice and a black olive note kissed with brown spice, vanilla, and clove from almost two years in French oak. The texture is now silky and refined but still weighty, and the finish is long, with lingering mineral and umami notes.
This is more than a steal, it’s a statement.
So, the Karo-Kann Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015 is not only real, it’s highly pedigreed. Notably, sourced from one of Rutherford’s premier estates, founded in the 1960s. Their Cabernets sell for $100-175 and routinely earn praise like, “dark, plush and inviting” and “supple-textured.” No, we can’t tell you who—a strict NDA is half the reason we were able to acquire it, the other half, Napa knowhow, and a lot of longstanding relationships. When growers have more fruit than they can bottle, we are often the first people they call.
The name Karo-Kann is a tribute to the world-famous chess maneuver. The strategy—like most of chess—centers around making the perfect move for the long game, and Karo-Kann wines are the result of decades of strategy. By putting the wines first and picking our spots we are able to deliver what most don’t think is possible—an incredibly priced Napa Cabernet that is true, thoughtfully crafted, and delicious.
