Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) It jumps out of the glass with aromas of black fruit, incense and plums. The flavors are well delineated and comprised of dark cherry, plums, mineral and touch of cocoa. There is also a streak of red berry through the mid-palate on a fine structured spine.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Rather than expressing a single vineyard or a unique place, the Banshee team has assembled a wine that rather speaks to many facets of Napa Valley. In this wine are components from famous vineyards like Stagecoach and Ink Grade as well as fruit from emerging regions like Coombsville, which sits in a cool enclave just east of the town of Napa. The combination of rugged hillside and gentler valley floor, of warmer up-valley fruit and cooler stuff from the south results in a rich, supple and deeply savory red with lots of cedar, leather and black olives over a deep core of black currant. The Banshee team believes this is the best Cabernet they’ve ever created, and we don’t disagree.
