Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #28698 (In Stock)
Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

We don't see this nearly often enough - a super-star winemaker who could easily fill his days (and pocketbook) doing just his own wines and consulting for a few high-end boutiques rolling up his sleeves, digging in, and making California wine you can afford to drink every day.  The winemaker is Aaron Pott - Food & Wine Magazine's Winemaker of the Year in 2012 - and his partner is former sommelier Joseph Carr.  Together, Aaron and Joseph are creating a line of fresh and food-friendly wines with plenty of Napa Character and style – but at an eye-opening value price.

You’ll get good sense of why everyone is so excited about Napa’s 2012 Cabernets here, starting with the sweet and savory aromas of cherry, currant, bitter chocolate, roasted meat, and crushed mint.  The flavors follow the nose at first, but with air gain breadth and creaminess, coating your palate with layers of crushed blackberry, cassis, roasted meat, and rich chocolate.  Delicious stuff, but it’s the elegant structure, perfect balance, and sophisticated tannins lying underneath the long finish that are really exciting in a wine at this price.  A “real deal, real steal” bottle of Napa Cabernet you should not miss!

Joseph Carr Merlot Napa 2011 Joseph Carr Merlot Napa 2011

We don't see this nearly often enough - a super-star winemaker who could easily fill his days (and pocketbook) doing just his own wines and consulting for a few high-end boutiques rolling up his sleeves, digging in, and making California wine you can afford to drink everyday.  The winemaker is Aaron Pott - Food & Wine Magazine's Winemaker of the Year in 2012 - and his partner is former sommelier Joseph Carr.  Together, Aaron and Joseph are creating a line of fresh and food-friendly wines with plenty of Napa Character and style - but just about one-third of the price!

When you've starred as head winemaker for St. Emilion's Ch La Tour Figeac, you  know a little something about great Merlot. Winemaker Aaron Pott brings that expertise to bear on this blend of Merlot from Napa's Yountville and Oak Knoll regions.  Very pretty aromas of dark chocolate, blackberry and fresh herb lead to a plump, soft (but shapely) mouthful of cocoa, mint, plum, sweet cherry and savory mushroom flavors.  The finish is smooth and fresh and stylish, especially for a wine at this price.  Great value.
