The 2019 vintage in Napa Valley is looking like it’s going to be one for the record books with most saying that it’s even better than the 2018s. Those got a 99 point vintage rating from Wine Spectator so 2019 is either on target for a 100 vintage rating or they’re going to have to change the scale.
So it’s been a bit like shooting fish in the barrel for a friend Chad and his clandestine wine project. And after what he’s seen in Willamette Pinot, the kid could use a break.
So unlike many previous vintages of CHAD where he had to scour Napa Valley for a diamond in the rough. This vintage there were hundreds of barrels that were good enough to meet Chad’s exacting standards so he got his picks of the litter and hand’s down has crafted his best Chad Cabernet yet.
Eight barrels made the cut for the final blend, from two nearby south-facing vineyards up in the St. Helena hillsides. The wine from the sister barrels to these eight is currently available with a different label on the front of the bottle for a little more than seventy-five bucks a pop.
