Auction 27 | Lot No. 100
20 cases produced
- 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Napa Valley’s diverse regions, climates and soil types in one blend
- Weaves together firm tannins from the mountain region with supple fruit from the valley floor
- Good weather and extended hang time produced rich color, structural balance and depth of flavor
- Differentiated by its richness, thanks to spectacularly mature fruit
Fifth-generation winemaker Joseph Wagner started with a simple philosophy—combine the very best grapes from across the valley into one amazingly balanced blend to weave a tapestry of Napa Valley wine. And with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown as far north as the Calistoga nested appellation and as far south as the Coombsville nested appellation, perhaps no other wine entwines the patchwork of Napa Valley vineyards quite like Napa Valley Quilt.
The 2021 Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied and complex, thanks to an ideal growing season, even growth and optimal hang time. This particular lot is differentiated by its richness, with concentrated black fruit and excellent balance. With breadth and structure complemented by a supple, velvety mouthfeel, it expresses the best the region has to offer in one satisfying blend.
