When you get to taste the 2016 Carl Roy Napa Valley Cabernet blend, you might just stand and applaud. It’s as good of a deal as anything we’ve offered this year. The guys at Carl Roy know where to find the deals as they are a label of opportunity, the opportunity to put a $50-$60 wine in the bottle to sell at $25. So, when Carl Roy knocks, I always open the door….
The 2016 Napa Valley Eastside Cuvee is a classic Napa red, black in color with a dynamic nose of cassis, cedar and chocolate-tinged purple fruit. The wine is fabulously concentrated with a firm, solid finish that speaks to its potential for considerable aging. The price is just ridiculous. The raw ingredients, (the fruit, barrels, consulting winemaker…) add up to a $45-50 wine.
But this wine is less than $25 per bottle on case purchases. Just about 50% off. If you are a lover of hedonistically fruity, powerful Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this is the deal you cannot miss.

2016 in the Napa Valley was a terrific year for Cabernet. A dry, warm spring was followed by a cool, dry summer, allowing for incredibly slow, even development of aromas and flavors, a picture-perfect vintage. Harvest began in mid-October providing grapes with unusual “hang-time”. Selected from vineyards just south of Oakville, the wine is full of rich red and black fruit, punctuated by the fine acid backbone of this extraordinary vintage. The 2016 is a special Cabernet based blend, super-charged with some old vine, low ph Petit Verdot that makes lends a powerful kick in fruit and structure but with a stony freshness that makes it both great at the table and a candidate for short term aging. – Chef Nicholas
