Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) “Seavey's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Caravina is one of the very finest values in Napa Valley. Supple, radiant and expressive, the 2013 is a pure joy to taste, as it expresses plenty of site-specific nuance in a more approachable style than the estate's flagships.

    (From 2000 Vintage) "The 2000 Caravina (850 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has more sweetness and plump fruit than the 1999. This elegant, refined, and delicious medium to full-bodied Cabernet should be consumed during its first 10-12 years of life."
